Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Highcliffe

I am soon to exchange buying a house in Highcliffe but as a consequence of damage from some water damage at the property I have was able negotiate compensation from the vendor of £3k in the form of a deduction in the price. This was going to be addressed as part of the conveyancing process but Co-operative are not allowing this. Should they have been involved?

Any solicitor that is on a Co-operative approved list is required to inform Co-operative of any variations to the purchase price. If you were to refuse your conveyancer to notify the price change to Co-operative then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Co-operative and you would have to appoint a new lawyer for your conveyancing in Highcliffe.

My flat in Highcliffe is up for sale and I have a buyer. Will my lawyer need to be required to be on the Lloyds conveyancing panel in order to deal with paying off my mortgage?

Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Lloyds conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their requirements fairly frequently at the moment.

I'm buying a new build house in Highcliffe benefiting from help to buy. The builders refused to budge the amount so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The estate agent advised me not to tell my lawyer about the extras as it may jeopardize my mortgage with the lender. 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.
