Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Hoddesdon

We are planning on selling our home in Hoddesdon and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being built land that was not decontaminated. Any local conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers used a factory type conveyancing firm as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Hoddesdon. Having lived in Hoddesdon for many years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to get confirmation that the buyers are looking for.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor already. What do they say? You should enquire of 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 sickness)

The deeds to our home can not be found. The lawyers who handled the conveyancing in Hoddesdon 10 years ago are no longer around. What are my next steps?

Assuming you have a registered title the information relating to your proprietorship will be evidenced by the Land Registry under a Title Number. It is easy to conduct a search at the Land Registry, find your property and secure up to date copies of the property title for a small fee. If the title is Leasehold then the Land Registry will in most cases hold a certified duplicate of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be obtained for a small fee.

I am purchasing my first flat in Hoddesdon with the aid of help to buy. The builders refused to budge the price so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The house builders rep told me not disclose to my lawyer about the side-deal as it will impact my loan with The Royal Bank of Scotland. Should I keep quiet?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer 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 issue on a house I put an offer in two weeks back in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Hoddesdon is the location of the property. Can you offer any opinion?

Flying freeholds in Hoddesdon are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Hoddesdon you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Hoddesdon may decide 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 property.

As co-executor for the will of my uncle I am disposing of a house in Monmouth but reside in Hoddesdon. My lawyer (approximately 235 kilometers awayhas requested that I sign a statutory declaration before the transaction finalising. Could you suggest a conveyancing practitioner in Hoddesdon to attest this legal document for me?

Technically speaking you are not likely to be required to have the documents attested by a conveyancing solicitor. Normally or notary public or qualified solicitor will suffice regardless of whether they are Hoddesdon based

I have been told by various estate agents to expect 6-8 weeks for Hoddesdon conveyancing to complete.This was 3 ago. The paperwork was only forwarded to my solicitor yesterday so now does it countdown?

No official countdown exists for conveyancing in Hoddesdon, or any location. You simply have to ensure that your finances are in place and wait for the rest to come together.
