Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Heysham

Our nephew is about to exchange on a newly built flat in Heysham with a mortgage from Lloyds. His solicitor has advised him of a delay in receiving the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. What is this document - I have never come across this before?

The form is intended to provide information to the main parties engaged in the transaction. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the Lloyds conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the surveyor when asked. The developer will be required to start the process by downloading the form and completing it. The form will therefore need to be available for the valuer at the time of his or her site visit. The form should be sent to the Lloyds conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.

I'm the only recipient of my late mum's will with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Heysham. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in May. I want to move. I do know about the CML 6 month 'rule', meaning my property ownership may be regarded the same way as if I'd bought the house in May. Is the property unsalable for six months?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook obliges solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you may be affected by that. How sensible a view banks take of it, depend on the mortgage company as this provision principally exists to pick up on subsales or the wholesaling and assigning of properties.

Is it the case that all Heysham solicitor practices on the RBS conveyancing panel are governed by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?

As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the RBS conveyancing panel they would need to be governed by the SRA. The majority of mortgage companies do list licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such practice would be governed by the CLC.

I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with Aldermore. I assume I don't need a Heysham solicitor on the Aldermore panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?

If you have finished paying off your Aldermore mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Aldermore mortgage from the register. Aldermore, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where Aldermore has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. Aldermore has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Aldermore mortgage has been paid off.

The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided.

Due to the advice of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Heysham prior to retaining lawyers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold element to the house. The surveyor advised that some lenders tend not grant a loan on this type of house.

It depends who your proposed lender is. Lloyds has different instructions for example to Birmingham Midshires. If you call us we can check with the appropriate bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Heysham. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.

I have been pointed in your direction by a couple of local property agents in Heysham to get a quote from a solicitor on your site. Is there a financial inducement for Estate Agents to market your site over and above alternative conveyancing organisations?

We don’t give any commission for pointing buyers and sellers in our direction. We found it would be just too difficult a fee as a client could think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not receiving any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.

I need to find a conveyancing solicitor for remortgage conveyancing in Heysham. I happened to chance upon a site which seems to have the perfect answer If it is possible to get all formalities done via phone that would be preferable. Should I be wary? What are the potential pitfalls?

As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?
