My fiancee and I are acquiring our first property. Our lawyer has texted usto check if we would like to purchase supplemental conveyancing searches. We are really unsure what's necessary for conveyancing in Stamford Bridge
The range of Stamford Bridge conveyancing searches depends primarily on the property, the location, the possibility of any of these risks, your knowledge of the area and risks, your general approach to risk. What matters is that you adequately appreciate what information each search could supply. You may then decide if you personally think you need that search. If unclear, ask the solicitor to recommend.
Just acquired a terraced house in Stamford Bridge , how long will it take for the Land Registry to register the transfer to my name? My Stamford Bridge conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be certain the registration is dealt with.
There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Stamford Bridge registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timescales can vary depending on who lodges the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry need to notify any interested parties. At present roughly three quarters of such applications are fully dealt with within 12 days but some can be subject to longer delays. Historically registration is effected after the buyer has moved in to the premises therefore 'speed' is not typically an essential issue yet where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor can speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.
I am purchasing a new build house in Stamford Bridge with the aid of help to buy. The builders refused to reduce the price so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The sale representative suggested that I not to tell my conveyancer about the extras as it may affect my mortgage with Coventry Building Society. 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.

In what way can the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 affect my business property in Stamford Bridge and how can you help?
The particular law that you refer to affords a safeguard to commercial tenants, giving them the legal entitlement to make a request to court for a continuation of occupancy at the end of an expired lease. There are certain specified grounds where a landlord can refuse a lease renewal and the rules are complex. Fees are different for commercial conveyancing.
