Having sold my house in Iver last March yet the purchaser is telephoning every few hours complaining that their solicitor needs to hear from mine. What are the post completion sale legalities following completion?
Post completion of your disposal your solicitor should forward the transfer documentation and all of the paperwork to the purchaser's lawyers. Depending on the transaction, your conveyancer must also evidence that the legal charge in favour of the lender has been redeemed to the purchasers conveyancers. There are no post completion steps unique to conveyancing in Iver.
If you had a top tip for choosing a conveyancing solicitor in Iver what would it be?
It would be unwise to be swayed by the lowest Iver conveyancing costs illustration. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.
Can you point me to a directory of Kent Reliance panel conveyancers in Iver on the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook Website?
No. There is no such directory service on the CML or Building Society Association sites. A small selection of mortgage companies make their panel listings open the public on the web. Where you are seeking to appoint a Iver lawyer on the Kent Reliance please make the most of our tool.
Is it the case that all Iver solicitor firms on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel are regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?
As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel they would need to be regulated by the SRA. Many banks do list licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such firms would be overseen by the CLC.
My wife and I are intent on selling our property in Iver and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was constructed on contaminated land. A high street Iver conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the buyers used a national conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Iver. We have lived in Iver for six years we know of no issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to obtain confirmation need.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing firm already. Are they able to advise? You need to check with 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 life insurance to cover that same ailment)
I'm purchasing a new build house in Iver with a loan from Barclays Direct. The builders refused to move on the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The sale representative advised me not disclose to my lawyer about this side-deal as it could put at risk my loan with Barclays Direct. Is this normal?.
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.
I am downsizing from my home. My former lawyers have shut. It would be helpful to have a recommendation of a conveyancing firm. I happen to live in Iver if that makes things easier.

Am in the process of buying my 1st property in Iver. Conveyancing practitioner already selected. The broker pointed out that a survey is not appropriate as the property was only constructed 22 years ago.
The bare minimum you need a Home Buyer's Report. As the residence was constructed over a decade ago the property will be without a warranty, so you would be well advised not to take a risk. For a property that age with no signs of problems a Home Buyer's report could be enough. They will highlight any obvious problems and suggest additional investigation where appropriate. If there are any indications of material issues get a full structural survey.
