I have paid off my mortgage with UBS. I assume I don't need a Upminster Bridge conveyancing practitioner on the UBS panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.
If you have finished paying off your UBS mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the UBS mortgage from the register. UBS, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:
- but are not moving to another property
- where UBS has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- UBS has instructed the Land Registry to do so
I have instructed a Upminster Bridge conveyancer having checked that they are on the Barclays conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?
Barclays will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Barclays will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your property lawyer will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Upminster Bridge postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Barclays, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Upminster Bridge.
Just acquired a semi-detached house in Upminster Bridge , how long will it take for the Land Registry to record the transfer to my name? My Upminster Bridge conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to be certain the registration is addressed.
There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Upminster Bridge registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can vary subject to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry communicate with any other parties. Currently approximately 80% of submission are completed within 12 days but some can be subject to longer hold-ups. Registration occurs after the purchaser is living at the premises thus post completion formalities is not typically top priority but where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers could communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.
I am purchasing my first flat in Upminster Bridge benefiting from help to buy. The sellers refused to budge the amount so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The sale representative told me not disclose to my lawyer about this deal as it would adversely affect my mortgage with Chelsea 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.
