Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Hethersett

I am buying a house mortgage free in Hethersett. I have lived for the previous 20 years in Hethersett. Conveyancing searches are exorbitant. Given that I have knowledge of the road and vicinity very well must I have all the conveyancing searches?

If you not getting a mortgage, then all but one or two of the Hethersett conveyancing searches are optional. Your solicitor will try and sway you, no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches done, but he has a professional duty to do this. Do take into account; if you are intend to dispose of the house one day, it will likely be be of importance to your prospective buyer what the searches contain. There are plenty of instances where properties with apparent issues can still throw up detrimental search results. A good conveyancing solicitor in Hethersett will be able to give you some constructive advice concerning this.

I am helping my sister sell her property in Hethersett. Will the conveyancing solicitor order the energy performance certificate or it is for the owner to see to?

Following the demise of Home Packs, energy assessments remained a required part of selling a house. An EPC needs to be commissioned prior to the property being put on the market. It is not as aspect of the sale process that conveyancers ordinarily organise. If you are using a Hethersett conveyancing solicitor they might help arrange energy performance certificates given their contacts with long established Hethersett assessors

Having read lots of mortgage guides, I note that it is considered advisable to get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Hethersett solicitor - who is on the TSB conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. is that correct?

TSB will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually TSB will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your conveyancing practitioner will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Hethersett postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with TSB, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Hethersett.

I'm purchasing a new build house in Hethersett benefiting from help to buy. The builders would not move on the price so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The property agent advised me not to tell my solicitor about the deal as it may impact my mortgage with TSB. 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.

Due to the encouragement of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Hethersett in advance of instructing lawyers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold element to the property. My surveyor advised that some lenders tend not give a mortgage on a flying freehold house.

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