Why is leasehold purchase conveyancing in Sutton is more expensive?
Sutton leasehold conveyancing transactions usually involve additional investigations than freeholds including investigating the Lease, liaising with the Landlord such as serving appropriate notices on the Landlord or managing agent, obtaining up-to-date service charge and management information, obtaining Landlord’s consents and reviewing management accounts and formation documents.
My wife and I are selling our house in Sutton and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was constructed on contaminated land. Any high street Sutton lawyer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers are using an internet conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Sutton. We have lived in Sutton for three years we know that this is a non issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to get confirmation need.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor already. Are they able to advise? You must check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same illness)
I'm purchasing a new build house in Sutton with a mortgage from Platform Home Loans Ltd. The developers would not reduce the price so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The sale representative suggested that I not reveal to my solicitor about the deal as it may impact my mortgage with the bank. 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.
I decided to have a survey carried out on a property in Sutton prior to instructing lawyers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. Our surveyor has said that some mortgage companies tend refuse to give a loan on this type of house.
