Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Marks Gate

My wife and I are nearing an exchange on a property in Marks Gate and my parents have sent the exchange deposit to my property lawyer. I am now advised that as the deposit has not arrived from me my conveyancer needs to disclose this to my lender. Apparently, in also acting for the mortgage company he must advise them that the balance of the purchase price is coming from anyone other than me. I disclosed to the lender concerning my parents' contribution when I applied for the home loan, so is it really appropriate for him to raise this?

The property lawyer is duty bound to clarify with the bank to make sure that they are aware that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. The solicitor can only disclose this to your mortgage company if you permit them to, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.

I'm buying a new build house in Marks Gate with a loan from Nottingham Building Society. The sellers refused to move on the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of extras instead. The sale representative told me not inform my lawyer about the deal as it will adversely affect my loan with Nottingham Building Society. Should I keep quiet?.

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%.
