Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Paddock Wood

AssumingI was to acquire a freehold propertyin Paddock Wood mortgage fee and dispense with a survey and no conveyancing searches how much should I expect to to save on my conveyancing in Paddock Wood?

Any savings you would gain will be isolated to the Paddock Wood conveyancing searches. A conveyancer still got to do everything else - money laundering, liaising with the vendors conveyancing practitioner, SDLT submission, register the title etc. You might save a bit for them not needing to register a charge however it will not be a lot.

It is a dozen years since I purchased my home in Paddock Wood. Conveyancing lawyers have recently been instructed on the sale but I can't track down my title documents. Will this jeopardise the sale?

You need not be too concerned. First the deeds may be with the mortgage company or they could still be with the lawyers who handled your purchase. Secondly the likelihood is that the land will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you are the registered owner by your conveyancing lawyers acquiring up to date copy of the land registers. The vast majority of conveyancing in Paddock Wood relates to registered property but in the unlikely event that your property is not registered it is more tricky but is resolvable.

I am assisting my niece sell her property in Paddock Wood. Will the solicitor order the EPC or should I organise this?

After the demise of Home Packs, energy assessments remained a compulsory part of moving property. An energy assessment must be commissioned before the property is placed on the market. This is not something that solicitors normally organise. If you are instructing a Paddock Wood conveyancing practitioner they might be able to arrange energy assessments given their relationships with reputable Paddock Wood providers

My solicitor has informed me that restrictive coveneant insurance is needed on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Paddock Wood?

The right level of restrictive coveneant indemnity insurance should be dictated by who who your lender is. It would differ for example between HSBC Bank and Leeds Building Society. Conveyancing practitioners as opposed to borrowers take out such insurances.

I was told three weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Skipton. Is it usual for Skipton to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Paddock Wood is approved on their conveyancing panel? Skipton have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their PI Insurance.

Mortgage companies tend not to not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Skipton to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Skipton conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

Is it necessary to pay for insurance to protect me from financial exposure to chancel repairs when purchasing a residence in Paddock Wood?

Unless a prior purchase of the house completed post 12 October 2013 you may expect solicitors carrying out conveyancing in Paddock Wood to remain encouraging a chancel search and or chancel repair liability policy.

I am buying a new build house in Paddock Wood with a loan from Platform Home Loans Ltd. The builders would not move on the amount so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The property agent told me not reveal to my conveyancer about the deal as it would adversely affect my loan with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

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.

Do I need to be suspicious by estate agents that I am dealing with are suggesting a factory type conveyancing firm as opposed to a High Street Paddock Wood conveyancing company?

As with lots of professional services, often suggestions from family and friends can be worth their weight in gold. Yet there are lots of players in a conveyancing matter; estate agents, financial adviser and mortgage companies might all put forward conveyancers to use. On occasion these lawyers might be known to one of the organisations as experts in their field, but occasionally there behind the scenes commercial relationship behind the recommendation. You have the discretion to select your preferred conveyancer. You need to be aware that many lenders specify a panel list of conveyancers you are obliged to use for the mortgage related work in your transaction.
