Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Rawcliffe

Our grandson is buying a house that has just been built in Rawcliffe with a home loan from Principality. His conveyancer has advised him of a delay in completing the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. This document is news to me - what is it and who needs sight of it?

The document is intended to provide information to the main parties engaged in the purchase. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the Principality conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the surveyor 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 Principality conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.

It is 10 years ago since I purchased my house in Rawcliffe. Conveyancing lawyers have recently been appointed on the sale but I can't track down the deeds. Will this cause complications?

Don’t worry too much. Firstly there is a chance that the deeds will be with your lender or they could be in the possession of the solicitor who handled the purchase. Secondly the chances are that the title will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to prove you own the property by your conveyancing solicitors procuring up to date copy of the land registers. The vast majority of conveyancing in Rawcliffe involves registered property but in the rare situation where your property is not registered it is more tricky but is not insurmountable.

I had intended to instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Rawcliffe for our house purchase. Our broker informed us that our mortgage lenders Clydesdale won't deal with them. Surely this is unduly restrictive?

Banks ordinarily restrict either the type or the amount of conveyancing solicitors on their panel. A common example of such restriction(s) being that a law practice must have two or more partners. In addition to restricting the profile of firm, a few banks have limited the amount of solicitor practices they allow to represent them. Be aware that Clydesdale have no responsibility for the quality of advice provided by any member of Clydesdale Conveyancer Panel. Mortgage fraud was a key driver in the rationalisation of solicitor panels since 2008 even though there are mixed opinions concerning the level of solicitor engagement in some of that fraud. Statistics from the Land Registry reveal that plenty of law firms, including some in or near Rawcliffe only conduct one or two conveyances a year.

Is it the case that all Rawcliffe solicitor practices on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel are governed by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?

As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the Coventry BS approved list of solicitors they would need to be overseen by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. Some lenders do list licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such organisation would be governed by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.
