My god-son is purchasing a new build apartment in Mold with a mortgage from UBS. His conveyancer has said that there is 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 document is intended to provide information to the main parties involved in the transaction. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the UBS conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the surveyor when asked. 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 UBS conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.
Will conveyancers ask for an advanced payment for conveyancing in Mold?
If you are buying a property in Mold your lawyer will ask you place them with monies to cover the the cost of the conveyancing searches. Ordinarily this is called for to cover the fees of the Local Authority Search. If any deposit is payable against the purchase price then this will be asked for immediately ahead of contracts are exchanged. Any further balance that is due should be transferred shortly before completion.
we are a couple who are buying a 3 bedroom flat in Mold with a homeloan from Bank of Ireland.We would like to retain our Mold conveyancing practitioner but Bank of Ireland says his firm is not listed on their approved list of firms. We have to appoint a Bank of Ireland panel solicitor or retain our high street solicitor and pay for one of their panel ones to represent them. We feel as though this is unjust; Can we not simply insist that Bank of Ireland use our lawyer?
No, not really. The home loan issued to you is subject to its terms and conditions, a common one being that solicitors needs to be on the Bank of Ireland solicitor panel. in the past, most mortgage companies had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could find one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Bank of Ireland
Just acquired a detached house in Mold , how long should it take for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing the transfer to my name? My Mold conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be certain that my purchase is registered.
There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Mold registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can vary subject to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry must send notices to any interested persons or bodies. As of today approximately 80% of submission are completed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be extensive hold-ups. Historically registration takes place once the buyer has moved in to the property thus an expedited registration is not always an essential issue but where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.
I work for a reputable estate agent office in Mold where we have experienced a few flat sales derailed as a result of short leases. I have received contradictory information from local Mold conveyancing firms. Can you clarify whether the seller of a flat can start the lease extension formalities for the purchaser on completion of the sale?
Provided that the seller has owned the lease for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to commence the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. The benefit of this is that the proposed purchaser can avoid having to wait 2 years for a lease extension. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment has to be done prior to, or simultaneously with completion of the disposal of the property.
Alternatively, it may be possible to extend the lease informally by agreement with the landlord either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the buyer.
I am the registered owner of a 1st floor flat in Mold, conveyancing formalities finalised half a dozen years ago. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Similar flats in Mold with a long lease are worth £216,000. The ground rent is £50 levied per year. The lease ends on 21st October 2092
With 69 years remaining on your lease we estimate the price of your lease extension to span between £9,500 and £11,000 plus professional fees.
The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to provide a more accurate figure without more detailed investigations. You should not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional concerns that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
