Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Hermitage

My mortgage broker says he needs my Hermitage solicitor’s panel member for the Nationwide conveyancing panel. What is the best way to obtain this. I have contacted my local Hermitage branch but they cant find it on their system.

Have you tried speaking to your Hermitage lawyer about this?. Most Hermitage conveyancing practices will retain a file or database of lender panel information which would include, if applicable, their conveyancing panel details for each lender.

How up to date is your search tool for Hermitage conveyancing solicitors on the Nationwide conveyancing panel? Do Nationwide send you an updated list?

Hermitage conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the Nationwide conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from Nationwide directly.

My partner and I are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our property in Hermitage and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being built land that was not decontaminated. A local lawyer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the buyers are using a nationwide conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Hermitage. We have lived in Hermitage for 5 years we know of no issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to get confirmation that the buyers are looking for.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You should check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same ailment)

I'm purchasing a new build house in Hermitage with a loan from Barnsley Building Society. The sellers refused to budge the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of extras instead. The property agent advised me not to tell my conveyancer about this deal as it may affect my mortgage with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

I opted to have a survey completed on a house in Hermitage in advance of retaining lawyers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. My surveyor advised that some banks tend not grant a loan on such a property.

It depends who your proposed lender is. HSBC has different instructions for example to Nationwide. If you call us we can check with the relevant lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Hermitage. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.

Is it best to use a Hermitage conveyancing practitioner based in the vicinity that I am hoping to buy? An old friend can carry out the legal work but they are based a couple of hundredmiles drive away.

The primary upside of using a local Hermitage conveyancing firm is that you can attend the office to sign paperwork, deliver your ID and apply pressure on them if necessary. Having local Hermitage know how is a bonus. However it's more important to get someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If you know people who instructed your friend and the majority were happy that must trump using an unknown Hermitage conveyancing lawyer solely due to them being Hermitage based.
