Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Pratt's Bottom

My son is buying a newly built flat in Pratt's Bottom with a mortgage from TSB. His lawyer has said that there is a delay in completing the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. Who needs to receive the form?

The document is intended to provide information to the main parties involved in the purchase. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the TSB conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the valuer when asked. The developer will be required to start the process by downloading the form and completing it. The form will therefore need to be available for the valuer at the time of his or her site visit. The form should be sent to the TSB conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.

We are expecting a mortgage offer soon. The bank mentioned the home loan came with free conveyancing. Is the implication that I have to instruct their panel lawyer as I would prefer to use a Pratt's Bottom based conveyancing firm?

You should check but the chances are that give you one of their panel solicitors if you take up the "fee-free" offer. Contact the bank and see if they offer you a monetary alternative. In the past a few mortgage companies offered a £250 cashback as an alternative in which case you could put that amount towards the cost for your conveyancing solicitor near Pratt's Bottom.

Me and my partner are buying a apartment in Pratt's Bottom. It might be a silly question but how we can trust a lawyer? On completion day we will need to deposit money into their account. What protection do we have from them run away with our money?

Be assured that all money in a Solicitors client account is 100% safe, and even if your Solicitor ran off with it, the Law Society would reimburse you fully.

We are planning to move home in July. Should my conveyancing solicitor update the removal company on the completion day. On a separate note, can you suggest a removal company in Pratt's Bottom. Conveyancing firm was chosen prior to coming across this website.

On the day of completion you can collect the house keys from the estate agent however this should only be done after the previous owners lawyers advise the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be handed over. Subsequently you should advise the removal company that they can start moving you in. We are not in a position to suggest a specific removal company but can assist you in finding a residential property solicitor in Pratt's Bottom or a firm that specialises in conveyancing in Pratt's Bottom.

Completion of my purchase has taken place for my property in Pratt's Bottom. Conveyancing was of an acceptable standard but I would like to complain about the lender. How do I make a complaint?

Almost all lenders have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Services Department at head office. Ordinarily complaints to a lender are resolved very quickly. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service, South Quay Plaza, 183 Marsh Wall, London E14 9SR who will take matters further.

I am buying my first flat in Pratt's Bottom with a loan from Godiva Mortgages Ltd. The developers would not budge the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of extras instead. The house builders rep advised me not inform my lawyer about this deal as it would put at risk my loan with Godiva Mortgages Ltd. Should I keep quiet?.

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 guidance of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Pratt's Bottom in advance of retaining lawyers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. Our surveyor advised that some lenders tend not issue a loan on this type of house.

It varies from the lender to lender. Bank of Scotland has different requirements for example to Nationwide. If you e-mail us we can investigate further via the relevant mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Pratt's Bottom. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.
