Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Little Ilford

I have just been advised by my lender that my Little Ilford lawyer is not on the mortgage company Conveyancing panel. What can I do to be sure if this is correct?

Your first step should be to contact your Little Ilford lawyer directly. It is reasonable to expect your lawyer to inform you what has happened. Where they are not on the panel they may be able to suggest a Little Ilford conveyancing firm that is on the approved list of lawyers for your mortgage company.

The vendors of the property we are looking to purchase have instructed a conveyancing firm in Little Ilford who has insisted on a preliminary contract with a deposit of 5k. Are such contracts promoted for Little Ilford conveyancing transactions?

There are two primary concerns with entering into any lock out agreement (also termed a shut-out contract) is that it can distract from making progress with the conveyancing work, so in the absence of it needing little or no negotiation then it could turn out to be a hindrance. It is not promoted amongst Little Ilford conveyancing solicitors as a result. A further concern is the extent of the remedies available - a jilted buyer should not expect to win an injunctive ruling by a court to prohibit the seller completing the sale to a third party, so the only remedy open via the contract will be the recovery of abortive charges and, in rare circumstances, the additional payment of penalties.

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.

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 residence.
