It is a dozen years since I acquired my property in Sanderstead. Conveyancing solicitors have now been instructed on the sale but I can't find the deeds. Will this cause complications?
Don’t worry too much. Firstly the deeds may be kept by the lender or they could be in the possession of the lawyers who handled your purchase. Secondly the chances are that the land will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to prove you own the property by your conveyancing solicitors obtaining up to date copy of the land registers. Most conveyancing in Sanderstead involves registered property but in the unlikely event that your home is unregistered it is more tricky but is not insurmountable.

After that you should inform the removal company that they can start moving you in. We are not in a position to recommend a particular removal organisation but can assist you in finding a conveyancing in Sanderstead or a solicitor that specialises in conveyancing in Sanderstead.
I am purchasing a 3 bedroom semi in Sanderstead. The intention is to an extension at the rear at the property.Will the conveyancing process include investigations to ascertain if these alterations are allowed?
Your solicitor should review the deeds as conveyancing in Sanderstead can occasionally identify restrictions in the title deeds which prevent categories of alterations or necessitated the permission of a 3rd party. Many extensions call for local authority planning permissions and approval in accordance building regulations. Certain locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or impact extensions. You should check these things with a surveyor prior to committing yourself to a purchase.
Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Lloyds. Sanderstead conveyancing practitioners have been chosen. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Lloyds?
There is no definitive answer here. Have Lloyds done the survey? Have you informed Lloyds as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Lloyds conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.
I am buying my first flat in Sanderstead benefiting from help to buy. The sellers refused to budge the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The house builders rep suggested that I not inform my lawyer about the extras as it may affect my loan with Norwich and Peterborough Building Society. Is this normal?.
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.
My fiance and I are planning to purchase a four bedroom ground floor flatin Sanderstead with a home loan from a mortgage company. We have a solicitor in Sanderstead but our lender advise she’s not on their "panel". Apparently we need to choose from the our lender panel firms or keep our Sanderstead conveyancer and pay for one of their panel ones to represent them. This seems very unfair; Can we not simply insist that our mortgage company use our Sanderstead lawyer?
Unfortunately,no. The mortgage company mortgage offered to you is subject to conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the mortgage company's conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had open panels, including many conveyancing solicitors in Sanderstead : a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for your lender.
