I have given 2 months notice to my existing landlord and must vacate my rented apartment in Nunhead by the end of next month. Conveyancing on my purchase has just started. Is it possible to complete in 4 weeks as I wish to avoid having to find short term accommodation?
The normal practice is not to give notice on a rental until exchange of contracts has taken place. Assuming that you have not already done so, update to your conveyancer and urge them to they apply pressure on the owners solicitors, try to an acceptable time-line that everyone will work towards
Finally the sale completed on my house in Nunhead last June but my buyer keeps Skype messaging daily complaining that their conveyancer needs to hear from mylawyer. What should have happened now that I have sold?
Following your house sale your solicitor should deliver the transfer deeds and all additional paperwork to the purchaser's conveyancer. If applicable, your solicitor should also confirm that the mortgage has been redeemed to the purchasers solicitors. There are no post completion procedures just for conveyancing in Nunhead.
My wife and I own a renovated Victorian property in Nunhead. Conveyancing solicitor acted for me and TSB. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are a couple of entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold under the exact same address. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?
You should read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Nunhead and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also check the position with your conveyancing solicitor who carried out the work.
I'm purchasing a new build house in Nunhead with the aid of help to buy. The developers refused to move on the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The sale representative advised me not to tell my conveyancer about the extras as it would jeopardize my mortgage 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.
