My partner and I are buying a newly constructed apartment in Preston and my solicitor is informing me that she has to the mortgage company to reveal incentives from the developer. I am on a tight deadline to exchange and I don't want to prolong deal. Is my lawyer right?
You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your conveyancing practitioner. A precondition to being on a mortgage company panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook provisions. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.
Have purchased a a detached house in Preston , how long will it take for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing my proprietorship? My Preston conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be sure that my name is recorded.
As far as conveyancing in Preston is concerned, registration is no quicker or slower than anywhere else in England and Wales. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can adjust according to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry communicate with any third persons or bodies. At present in the region of 80% of submission are fully addressed within two weeks but some can be subject to longer hold-ups. Historically registration is effected once the buyer is living at the premises therefore 'speed' is not usually top priority but where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
