It has taken forever and a day but a loan agreement from HSBC for the refinancing of my 2 bedroom apartment is to be issued any day now. Are you able to recommend a cheap conveyancing lawyer in Sedbergh?

This site is not designed to aid those in their quest for a cheap conveyancing in Sedbergh. Our aim is to provide excellent value conveyancing but we do not work with the cheapest lawyers. Do not be fooled by brokers offering ninety nine pound conveyancing in Sedbergh. At best, in deciding on cheap conveyancing, you will earn what you pay for and at worst it will result in you paying a lot in extras and still not get the service you were hoping for.

IfI was to buy a straightforward propertyin Sedbergh mortgage fee and dispense with a survey and no conveyancing searches how much should I expect to have to pay for conveyancing in Sedbergh?

The sole reduction in fees you would achieve is the Sedbergh conveyancing searches. A solicitor still got to do everything else - money laundering, correspond with the vendors solicitor, SDLT submission, register the ownership etc. A slight saving might be made by not having to register a charge however it won't be significant.

Is it the case that all Sedbergh conveyancing solicitors on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel are regulated by the SRA?

As solicitors, in order to be on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel they would need to be overseen by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. Some banks do permit licenced conveyancers on their panel and in that case the firms would be governed by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.

I have a mortgage with Santander for my property in Sedbergh. Conveyancing was finalised 12 months ago. If I am intending to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform Santander?

Your original mortgage agreement with Santander will provide that you need their approval before letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Santander’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Santander will permit you to let out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Santander directly. You need not do this via a Santander conveyancing panel lawyer.

I am selling my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in April 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s mortgage company, Aldermore are being difficult. The Sedbergh solicitor who is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Aldermore are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Aldermore have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Aldermore have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Aldermore may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

I'm buying a new build house in Sedbergh with a loan from Santander. The developers would not move on the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of extras instead. The house builders rep told me not inform my lawyer about the side-deal as it would put at risk my loan with the lender. Should I keep quiet?.

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.
