The Markyate conveyancing firm handling our Markyate conveyancing has identified a discrepancy when comparing the assumptions in the home valuation report and what is revealed within the conveyancing documents. My solicitor says that he is obliged to check that the bank is OK with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my conveyancer’s approach legitimate?
Your conveyancing practitioner must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook provisions which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for you.
I am buying a victorian detached house in Markyate. We would like to carry out an extension to the side at the property.Will the conveyancing process involve investigations to ascertain if these alterations are allowed?
Your property lawyer should review the registered title as conveyancing in Markyate will on occasion reveal restrictions in the title deeds which prohibit categories of changes or require the permission of a 3rd party. Many additions call for local authority planning permissions and approval in accordance building regulations. Certain areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or impact extensions. You should check these things with a surveyor prior to committing yourself to a purchase.
Is it the case that all Markyate CQS (Conveyancing Quality Scheme) solicitors are on the Skipton conveyancing panel?
It is true that some lenders now utilise CQS as the starting point for Panel approval such as HSBC and Santander. CQS membership however gives no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. That being said,the CML have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for solicitor practices wishing to remain on their approved list of firms.
Is it the case that all Markyate conveyancing solicitors on the Aldermore conveyancing panel are regulated by the SRA?
As solicitors, in order to be on the Aldermore approved list of solicitors they would need to be overseen by the SRA. Many banks do permit licenced conveyancers on their panel and in such a situation the organisation would be regulated by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.
I have a terraced Georgian property in Markyate. Conveyancing lawyer represented me and Godiva Mortgages Ltd. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw two entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold under the exact same property. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?
You need to review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Markyate and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also question the situation with the conveyancing solicitor who conducted the conveyancing.
I'm buying my first flat in Markyate with the aid of help to buy. The builders would not reduce the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The house builders rep told me not inform my solicitor about this deal as it would impact my loan with Bank of Ireland. Should I keep quiet?.
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.
