At what point can the exchange of contracts happen for purchase conveyancing in Ormskirk and am I required to attend the conveyancers branch?
Where you are near to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Ormskirk you are invited in to sign the paperwork. However, the lender approved solicitors we recommend offer countrywide coverage for conveyancing and provide just as comprehensive and professional a job for you when communicating with you by post or email. The signing of the contract is not the point of no return. Signing on the dotted line is necessary for the conveyancer to officially exchange when the time is right, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The exchange process is is usually a five minute process, although where an extended "chain" is involved, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Ormskirk)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.
I had intended to instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Ormskirk for our house move. Our broker has since advised us that our mortgage lenders Godiva Mortgages Ltd won't deal with them. Why is this not regarded as unduly restrictive?
Pre- 2008 most lenders had an appetite for risk which was higher than today. Almost all Ormskirk conveyancing firms would have been on most bank panels. The Financial Services Authority in 2010 conducted a thematic investigation into mortgage fraud which come to the conclusion: know the conveyancing solicitors dealt with. Consequently, mortgage companies have regularly sought more data from law firms concerning their operations and their employees and set certain criteria such a completing on a minimum number of transactions. Many Ormskirk conveyancing firms that have been excluded from lender panels have a 100% healthy track record, no complaints and no claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing. Ormskirk is one of the hundreds of areas where the lawyers we list are on the panel for Godiva Mortgages Ltd.
My wife and I are downsizing from our house in Ormskirk and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was constructed on contaminated land. A local conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the purchasers instructed a factory type conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Ormskirk. We have lived in Ormskirk for three years we know of no issue. Do we contact our local Authority to seek clarification that there is no issue.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer already. Are they able to advise? You need to enquire of 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 illness)
It has been 4 months since my purchase conveyancing in Ormskirk took place. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £180,000. 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 property 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'm buying a new build house in Ormskirk with a loan from Aldermore. The sellers refused to budge the price so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The house builders rep advised me not inform my lawyer about the side-deal as it would affect my mortgage with Aldermore. Should I keep quiet?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer 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.
