Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Sandiacre

We are buying a new build apartment in Sandiacre and my solicitor is telling me that she has to the mortgage company to disclose incentives from the seller. I am on a tight deadline to exchange contracts 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 property lawyer. A precondition to being on a bank panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.

My solicitor has informed me that restrictive coveneant insurance is required on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Sandiacre conveyancing?

The right level of restrictive coveneant indemnity insurance depends on who your lender is. It would differ for example between Accord Mortgages Ltd and Norwich and Peterborough Building Society. Conveyancing solicitors as opposed to members of the public take out such insurances.

I can not work out if my lender requires a lease extension. I have called into my local Sandiacre building society branch on a couple of occasions and was told it does not impact the mortgage offer and they would lend. My Sandiacre conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- called to say that they refuse to lend based on their specific requirements. Who do I believe?

Your conveyancing practitioner must comply with the CML Handbook section two requirements for your bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

At last I have had an offer on a flat in Sandiacre agreed to, the sellers do nevertheless have an associated purchase. The sellers have offered on on an apartment, however it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other flats booked. I have instructed a local conveyancing solicitor in Sandiacre. What should be my next step? When should I get the mortgage application with Skipton going?

It is normal to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses prematurely (home loan application is approx one thousand pounds, then survey, Sandiacre conveyancing search fees, etc). First, you must check that your conveyancing practitioner is on the Skipton conveyancing panel. Regarding the subsequent stages this very much depends on the circumstances of your transaction, desire for this property and on the state of the market. During a rising market many buyers will apply for the mortgage with Skipton and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they request their property lawyer to proceed with searches.

Should our lawyer be making enquiries about flooding during the conveyancing in Sandiacre.

Flooding is a growing risk for solicitors dealing with homes in Sandiacre. There are those who acquire a property in Sandiacre, fully expectant that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, leaving to one side the physical damage, where a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, suitable insurance cover, or dispose of the premises. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the purchaser.

Lawyers are not qualified to give advice on flood risk, but there are a number of checks that may be carried out by the purchaser or by their conveyancers which should figure out the risks in Sandiacre. The conventional set of completed inquiry forms supplied to a purchaser’s conveyancer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) contains a standard inquiry of the vendor to determine if the premises has historically flooded. If the premises has been flooded in past and is not disclosed by the seller, then a purchaser could issue a claim for damages as a result of such an incorrect response. The purchaser’s conveyancers may also commission an enviro report. This will higlight whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, additional investigations will need to be initiated.

I'm purchasing a new build house in Sandiacre with a mortgage from Britannia. The sellers would not move on the price so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The property agent told me not disclose to my lawyer about the deal as it will put at risk my loan with the lender. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

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.

Hoping to buy a property located in Sandiacre and I am already nervous. I couldn't find anything specific about Sandiacre. Conveyancing will be needed in due course but do you know about the Sandiacre area? or perhaps some other tips you can share?

Rather than looking online forget looking online you should go and have a look at Sandiacre. In the meantime here are some basic statistics that we found

My partner and I are purchasing a garden flat in Sandiacre. When we first instructed solicitor, they assured us that they were on all mainstream bank panels. The financial adviser emailed today to advise that they are not on the Lloyds approved list. If it turns out to be true, what should we do? Do we just pick a new property lawyer that is on their panel or do we pay for separate representation, with Lloyds appointing their own preferred solicitor.

Where you are acquiring a property needing a mortgage it is normal for the buyer’s lawyers to also act for the purchaser's lender. In order to act for a bank or building society a lawyer has to be on that lender's list of approved lawyers. An application has to be made by the lawyer to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict conditions which the conveyancer has to satisfy. Some mortgage companies now require their panel firms to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Accreditation Scheme. Your solicitor should contact Lloyds to discover if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own lawyers to represent them. You don't have to instruct a firm on Lloyds's conveyancing panel and you may continue to use your own Sandiacre solicitors, in which case it will likely add costs, and it will likely delay the transaction as you have another set of people involved.
