Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Torpoint

I can't travel far from Torpoint. Please spell out why all Torpoint solicitors aren't automatically on all mortgage company panels?

Even though it may seem unfair for banks to restrict who can represent them, from the public’s or conveyancer’s perspective, the flip side is that banks are becoming ever more anxious and regard it imperative to protect them from illegal activities. As a consequence of this concern mortgage companies are limiting their conveyancing panel to a manageable size.

We are due to complete buying a house in Torpoint but as a result of wreckage from the recent storms I have managed to agree recompense from the owner in the sum of £3k in the form of a deduction in the price. I had intended this to be addressed as part of amending the contract however Coventry BS will not agree to this. Why were they informed?

Any conveyancing practitioner that is on a Coventry BS conveyancing panel is obliged to advise Coventry BS of any changes to the purchase price. If you prohibit your conveyancer to disclose the price change to Coventry BS then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Coventry BS and you would have to appoint a new property lawyer for your conveyancing in Torpoint.

This question may be naive but I am wet behind the ears as FTB of a ground floor flat in Torpoint. Do I pick up the keys to the premises on the completion date from my solicitor? If this is the case, I will find a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Torpoint?

There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Your solicitors will transfer the purchase money to the seller's lawyers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you should be invited to collect the keys from the selling Agents and move into your new home. This tends to happen between 1 and 3pm.

A relative advised me that in purchasing a property in Torpoint there may be various restrictions affecting the ability to carry out external alterations to the property. Is this right?

We are aware of anumerous of properties in Torpoint which have some sort of restriction or requirement of consent to execute external alterations. Part of the conveyancing in Torpoint should determine what restrictions are applicable and advising you as part of a ROT that should be sent to you.

Can I be sure that the Torpoint conveyancing solicitor on the TSB panel is any good?

I'm purchasing my first flat in Torpoint with a loan from Birmingham Midshires. The builders refused to reduce the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The sale representative suggested that I not disclose to my conveyancer about the extras as it could affect my loan with the lender. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

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.
