My wife and I purchasing a detached bungalow in Newport Pagnell. Our aim is to an extension at the rear at the property.Will the conveyancing process include enquiries to ascertain if these alterations are prohibited?
Your conveyancer should review the deeds as conveyancing in Newport Pagnell can occasionally reveal restrictions in the title documents which restrict categories of changes or need the permission of another owner. Many works need local authority planning permissions and approval in compliance with building regulations. Many areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or impact extensions. You should check these issues with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.
is it true that all Newport Pagnell conveyancing solicitors on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel are regulated by the SRA?
As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel they would need to be governed by the SRA. The majority of lenders do list licenced conveyancers on their panel and in such a situation the firms would be regulated by the CLC.
It has been 3 months following my purchase conveyancing in Newport Pagnell concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £215,000. 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 premises 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.
I am buying a new build house in Newport Pagnell with a mortgage from Nationwide Building Society. The builders refused to budge the amount so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The property agent advised me not reveal to my conveyancer about this extras as it will jeopardize my loan with the lender. Is this normal?.
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.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in last month in what should have been a quick, no chain conveyancing. Newport Pagnell is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Newport Pagnell are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Newport Pagnell you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Newport Pagnell may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.
My solicitors in Newport Pagnell have advised me that no longer have my conveyancing file. To assist with my purchase I took out a mortgage with the bank. Is it case that being on the lender conveyancing panel they need to have retained the file for a prescribed period?
It very much depends from lender to lender but many of the Terms and Conditions of Conveyancing Panel Appointment require the file to be held for a period of 6 years. That being said we have not seen a copy of the mortgage company Conveyancing Panel Terms. It might be worth you contacting the mortgage company directly.
