Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Mayfair

My nephew is buying a newly built flat in Mayfair with a mortgage from Yorkshire BS. His solicitor has advised him of a delay in receiving the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. This document is news to me - what is it and who needs sight of it?

The form 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 Yorkshire BS 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 Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.

In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Mayfair? Is this really warranted?

It is indeed that case that these requests have nothing to do with conveyancing in Mayfair. However these days you will not be able to proceed with any conveyancing deal without first handing over evidence of your identity. This usually takes the form of a either your passport or driving licence as well as a utility bill. Remember if you are supplying your driving licence as evidence of ID it must be both the paper part as well as the photo card part, one is not satisfactory in the absence of the other.

Verification of the source of money is mandated under Money Laundering Regulations. Don’t be offended when when this is requested of you as your conveyancer will need to have this information on file. Your Mayfair conveyancing practitioner will require evidence of proof of funds prior to accepting any funds from you into their client account and they will also ask additional queries concerning the origin of monies.

Do I need to attend the offices of the solicitor to sign the mortgage deed? If so, I will choose one who does conveyancing in Mayfair so that I can pop in to their offices when needed.

Most conveyancing panel lawyers for banks carry out the vast majority of work via Royal Mail, e-mail or over phone calls. This enables them to conduct the conveyancing transaction no matter where you live in England or Wales. However you can check if you can still book an appointment to visit conveyancing lawyer if needed.

Should our solicitor be asking questions about flooding during the conveyancing in Mayfair.

Flooding is a growing risk for conveyancers dealing with homes in Mayfair. Some people will buy a property in Mayfair, fully aware that at some time, it may be flooded. However, aside from the physical damage, where a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, adequate building insurance, or sell the premises. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the buyer.

Conveyancers are not best placed to offer advice on flood risk, but there are a various checks that can be carried out by the buyer or on a buyer’s behalf which will figure out the risks in Mayfair. The standard completed inquiry forms sent to a purchaser’s solicitor (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) contains a usual question of the vendor to find out if the property has historically flooded. In the event that the premises has been flooded in past which is not revealed by the vendor, then a purchaser could commence a claim for damages resulting from an misleading reply. A purchaser’s lawyers may also order an environmental report. This will higlight whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, more detailed inquiries will need to be initiated.
