Please help. My Manor Park lawyer is assuring me that he has toapply for Manor Park conveyancing searches resulting from the fact thatthe firm are on the HSBCconveyancing panel. Is this really necessary?
Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. As you are obtaining a mortgage with a bank your solicitor has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your property lawyer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to follow the CML Handbook specifications . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Manor Park conveyancing searches.
My wife and I are purchasing a house in Manor Park. It might be a silly question but how we can trust a conveyancer? On completion day we will need to put our life savings into their account. What protection do we have from them run away with our monies?
Be assured that all money in a Solicitors client account is 100% safe, and even if your Solicitor ran off with it, the Law Society would reimburse you fully.
Is it the case that all Manor Park conveyancing solicitors 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 approved list of solicitors they would need to be governed by the SRA. Some mortgage companies do allow licenced conveyancers on their panel and in such a situation the organisation would be governed by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.
My offer was accepted on an apartment in Manor Park on 19/3/2021, valuation was booked 3 days after, all came back fine. Conveyancer instructed, so all that was missing was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to HSBC and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the HSBC conveyancing panel. Can the lender hold off the offer?
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for HSBC to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the HSBC conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly identified as part of conveyancing in Manor Park?
Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Manor Park. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’
I am buying a new build house in Manor Park with the aid of help to buy. The sellers would not budge the price so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The sale representative advised me not to tell my conveyancer about the side-deal as it could jeopardize my loan with the lender. Is this normal?.
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.
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.

Our conveyancer in Manor Park has informed me that he requires personal identification documents asserting that this forms part of his obligations as a solicitor on the mortgage company Solicitor panel. Am I being spun a yarn?
Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules require Manor Park conveyancing solicitors and licensed conveyancers to verify the identity of the person or body they are dealing with before they can accept their conveyancing business. The Terms and Conditions that you need to sign will no doubt confirm this. Your lawyer is right that the bank also require certain documents to be viewed. If a you refuse to provide ID verification documents, your conveyancer would not be able to accept instructions from you. Your lawyer also has obligations to obtain certain documents in accordance with the bank's UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook requirements
