Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Hermitage

My solicitor has identified a a legal deficiency with the lease for the property we are purchasing in Hermitage. The seller’s lawyers have offered title insurance as a solution. We are happy with insurance and will cover the costs. Our conveyancing practitioner has advised that he must be satisfied that the mortgage company is happy with this solution. Who is the client here, us or the lender?

The short answer to your last question is that, notwithstanding the potential for a conflict of interest, you and the bank are the client. Your solicitor must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications. The UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions require your lawyer to disclose issues such as defects with the lease so that the mortgage company can be afforded the opportunity to check with their valuer as to the extent that the value of the property is affected. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your property lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for you.

We are expecting a mortgage offer soon. The bank mentioned the loan came with free conveyancing. Is the implication that I have to use their panel solicitor as I would much rather use a Hermitage based conveyancing firm?

You should check but the chances are that appoint one of their panel lawyers if you want the "fee-free" incentive. Speak to the mortgage company to see if they allow a monetary alternative. It is not unheard for a lender to give a £250 cashback as an alternative in which case you could put that amount towards your preferred conveyancing solicitor near Hermitage.

I am buying a new build house in Hermitage with the aid of help to buy. The sellers refused to budge the amount so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The property agent advised me not disclose to my conveyancer about this extras as it could put at risk my mortgage with HSBC 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.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a quick, no chain conveyancing. Hermitage is the location of the property. Is there any advice you can impart?

Flying freeholds in Hermitage are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Hermitage you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Hermitage may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.

My business partner and I are intending to take an assignment of a lease of an office on a shopping parade. Can you recommend solicitors offering no-sale-no charges for non-domestic conveyancing in Hermitage for less than 1500k?
