My partner and I are purchasing a newly built duplex in Llanarth and my conveyancer is informing me that she is duty bound to the bank to disclose incentives from the seller. I am under pressure to exchange contracts and I have no desire to delay deal. is my lawyer playing by the book?
You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your conveyancing practitioner. A precondition to being on a mortgage company panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook provisions. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.
We wanted to use a conveyancing solicitor in Llanarth for our house purchase. Our broker informed us that our mortgage lenders Nationwide Building Society won't deal with them. Why is this not regarded as unduly restrictive?
Pre- 2008 most banks had an appetite for risk which was higher than today. Almost all Llanarth conveyancing firms would have been on most lender panels. The FSA in 2010 completed a thematic review into mortgage fraud which come to the conclusion: mortgage lenders should know the conveyancing solicitors dealt with. Consequently, mortgage companies have regularly sought more information from law firms relating to their operations and their employees as well as set certain criteria such a completing on a minimum volume of transactions. Many Llanarth conveyancing firms that have been excluded from lender panels have Unblemished track record, no complaints and no claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing. Llanarth is one of the hundreds of areas where the lawyers we list are members of the panel for Nationwide Building Society.
The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build flat in Llanarth. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build conveyancing.
Here is a sample of a few leasehold new build questions that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Llanarth
Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. The Vendor must covenant to keep unsold units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore.
I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and identified one round the corner in Llanarth I like with a park and transport links nearby, the downside is that it only has 49 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Llanarth suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to supply the actual costs without more comprehensive investigations.
