I bought my flat on 3 March and my personal details are still not on the land registry website. Any reason for this? My conveyancing solicitor in Pimlico said it should be registered in less than a month. Are titles in Pimlico uniquely lengthy to register?
As far as conveyancing in Pimlico is concerned, registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of England and Wales. Rather than based on location, timeframes can vary depending on who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry must send notices to any third persons or bodies. Currently approximately three quarters of submission are fully addressed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to longer delays. Historically registration is effected after the purchaser is living at the property thus an expedited registration is not typically primary concern yet where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer could contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.
I'm buying my first flat in Pimlico benefiting from help to buy. The developers would not move on the price so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The sale representative advised me not to tell my conveyancer about this extras as it could jeopardize my loan with Barnsley Building Society. 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.
