My financial adviser says he needs my Norwood Green law firm’s panel reference for the Santander conveyancing panel. Can you suggest how I discover this. I have contacted my local Norwood Green branch but they cant find it on their system.
Have you tried speaking to your Norwood Green lawyer about this?. They maintain a central record lender panel numbers.
I am soon to exchange on the purchase of a house in Norwood Green but as a result of wreckage from the recent storms I have managed to agree compensation from the owner in the sum of £2k in the form of a reduction in the price. This was going to be addressed as part of a side agreement but Nationwide will not permit this. Why were they notified?
Your conveyancing practitioner being on the Nationwide approved list is obliged to inform Nationwide of any amendments to the sale price. If you were to refuse your property lawyer to report the price change to Nationwide then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Nationwide and you would have to appoint a new conveyancing practitioner for your conveyancing in Norwood Green.
My wife and I are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our property in Norwood Green and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was constructed land that was not decontaminated. A local conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the buyers instructed an online conveyancing firm as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Norwood Green. Having lived in Norwood Green for many years we know of no issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to seek confirmation need.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You should 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 life insurance to cover that same sickness)
I am buying a new build house in Norwood Green benefiting from help to buy. The builders would not budge the price so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The sale representative advised me not reveal to my lawyer about the extras as it may affect my loan with Nationwide Building Society. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
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.
Due to the encouragement of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Norwood Green ahead of retaining lawyers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold overhang to the property. The surveyor has said that some lenders tend refuse to issue a loan on this type of property.
