Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Sedbergh

We are selling our flat in Sedbergh. Will the solicitor have to be required to be on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel in order to deal with redeeming my mortgage?

Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their panel criteria fairly frequently currently.

I have recentlydiscovered that Action Conveyancing have closed. They carried out my conveyancing in Sedbergh for a purchase of a leasehold flat 10 months ago. How can I establish that my home is not still registered in the name of the former proprietor?

I'm buying a new build house in Sedbergh with a mortgage from Bank of Ireland. The sellers would not move on the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of extras instead. The property agent told me not disclose to my conveyancer about this deal as it may affect my loan with Bank of Ireland. Is this normal?.

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.
