I am hoping to receive a mortgage with Halifax. My intention is to instruct a Licensed Conveyancer in Much Hadham. Does the Halifax Solicitor panel allow for Licensed Conveyancers?
The Halifax conveyancing panel is, like many other lenders, associated to the CML or Building Society Association, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the CLC.
Finally the sale completed on my house in Much Hadham last January yet the purchaser is e-mailing me to moan that their lawyer is waiting to hear from mine. What should have happened now that I have sold?
Post completion of your house sale your conveyancer is obliged to deliver the transfer documentation and all of the paperwork to the buyer’s solicitors. Depending on the transaction, your conveyancer should also send confirmation that the mortgage has been redeemed to the buyers conveyancers. There is unlikely to be post completion tasks unique to conveyancing in Much Hadham.
I have an AIP. The bank mentioned the mortgage came with free conveyancing. Is the implication that I have to use their panel solicitor as I would prefer to use a Much Hadham based conveyancing firm?
You should check but the the likelihood is that appoint one of their panel conveyancers where you take up the "fee-free" incentive. Contact the bank to check if they allow a cash alternative. Some lenders have previously offered a £250 cashback as a further option in which case you could put that amount towards your preferred conveyancing solicitor in Much Hadham.
My wife and I are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our home in Much Hadham and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was constructed land that was not decontaminated. Any local lawyer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the purchasers are using a web based conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Much Hadham. We have lived in Much Hadham for 4 years we know that this is a non issue. Do we contact our local Authority to obtain confirmation that there is no issue.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing solicitor already. What do they say? You need to check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same ailment)
I am buying a new build flat in Much Hadham. Conveyancing is a frightening process at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build legal work.
Set out below is a sample of a few leasehold new build questions that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Much Hadham
Please confirm the Lease plans are architect prepared. Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier?
