Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Locks Heath

Our god-son is buying a new build apartment in Locks Heath with a mortgage from RBS. His lawyer has said that there is a delay in completing the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. This document is news to me - what is it and who needs sight of it?

The document is intended to provide information to the main parties involved in the purchase. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the RBS conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the valuer when requested. The developer will be required to start the process by downloading the form and completing it. The form will therefore need to be available for the valuer at the time of his or her site visit. The form should be sent to the RBS conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.

I am the single beneficiary of my late grandmother’s will with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Locks Heath. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in March. I want to move. I do know about the CML six month 'rule', which means that my property ownership will be treated the same way as if I'd bought the house in March. Do I have to wait half a year to sell?

The CML handbook obliges conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you could be affected by that. How sensible a view mortgage companies take of it, depend on the bank as this provision is chiefly there to pick up on subsales or the quick reselling of property.

I had a mortgage agreed in principle with Skipton. Locks Heath conveyancing practitioners are instructed. How long does it take for Skipton to issue the offer to the solicitor?

There is no definitive answer here. Have Skipton completed the valuation? Have you informed Skipton as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Skipton conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.

My sealed bid on a property in Locks Heath has been agreed to, the vendors do however have a tied purchase. The owners have placed an offer on somewhere, but it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other apartments in the pipeline. I have chosen a high street conveyancing solicitor in Locks Heath. What should be my next step? When should I get the mortgage application with UBS going?

It is understandable to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses too early (mortgage application is in the region of £1k, then survey, Locks Heath conveyancing search charges, etc). The first course of action is to check that your conveyancer is on the UBS approved list. Concerning the next phase this very much dictated by the specifics of your case, motivation for the property and on the state of the market. During a hot market some home buyers would apply for a home loan with UBS and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they ask their solicitor to move forward with searches.

Various internet forums that I have visited warn that are a common cause of hinderance in Locks Heath house deals. Is this right?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) published findings of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure within the common causes of hindrances during the legal transfer of property. Local searches are unlikely to be the root cause of delay in conveyancing in Locks Heath.
