My god-son is about to exchange on a new build apartment in Nailsworth with a mortgage from Lloyds. His solicitor has said that there is a delay in receiving the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. What is this document - I have never come across this before?
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 Lloyds 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 Lloyds conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.
What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Nailsworth? What am I being asked for?
In order to comply with Money Laundering Regulations any Nailsworth conveyancing firm will require evidence of your identity in all conveyancing transactions. This is usually satisfied by provision of a passport and an original bank statement or utility account showing your correct address.
Under Money Laundering Regulations, conveyancers are required to check not only the identity of conveyancing clients but also the origin of fund that they receive in respect of any matter. An unwillingness to disclose this will lead to your lawyer cancelling their relationship with you, as clearly this will cause a conflict between the set Regulations and a refusal to disclose.
Your property lawyers are duty bound to inform the relevant authorities should they consider that any amounts received by them may contravene the Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules.
3 months have elapsed following my purchase conveyancing in Nailsworth concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £160,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and found one round the corner in Nailsworth I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, however it only has 49 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Nailsworth in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?
If you require a home loan the shortness of the lease may be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.
What does commercial conveyancing in Nailsworth cover?
Non domestic conveyancing in Nailsworth covers a wide array of guidance, offered by qualified solicitors, relating to business premises. By way of example, this area of conveyancing can cover the sale or purchase of freehold business premises or, more usually, the assignment of existing business tenancies or the drafting of new leasing arrangements.

I have been informed by various family members that it may take six to eight weeks for Nailsworth conveyancing to complete.This was 3 ago. The paperwork was only sent to my conveyancer yesterday so does the time start running now?
You need to be pragmatic about timelines. Conveyancing in Nailsworth takes on average about two months. This timeframe is not due to solicitor being slow and deliberately delay matters. The amount of money involved in purchasing any property is so high, the buyer’s solicitor needing to carry out a whole range of queries, searches and supplemental checks to protect the purchaser and their mortgage company (if there is to be a home loan) from expensive, avoidable problems. Conveyancing in Nailsworth involves obtaining information from a range of different parties, for example other conveyancer, local councils, private companies, building societies and banks. Some of these are well organised. Plenty are not. It is worth noting that, it doesn't matter how quickly your conveyancing practitioner do their part, if the people you are purchasing from or are selling to aren't ready, nothing can move forward until they are.
