We have rather brash vendors who has recommended a exclusivity contract with a non-refundable deposit 6,000. Is it wise to enter into such agreements?
Lock out contracts are contracts between a home vendor and prospective buyer giving the buyer a ‘clear field’ to the sale of the property for a limited period of time. Essentially, an exclusivity agreement is a contract specifying that you will be issued with a contract at a later time being the contract for the actual sale. It tends to be utilised for buyer protection though in many situations, the seller may enjoy an upside from such agreements as well. There are many positives and negatives to using an agreement but you need to check with your solicitor but note that it may end up costing you extra in conveyancing fees. For this these agreements are not popular in relation to conveyancing in Waltham Cross.
I have recentlyfound out that Wolstenholmes have been shut down. They conducted my conveyancing in Waltham Cross for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 18 months ago. How can I check that my home is in my name in the name of the former proprietor?
The easiest method to check if the property is registered to you, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Waltham Cross conveyancing specialists.
I am buying a new build house in Waltham Cross with a mortgage from Norwich and Peterborough Building Society. The sellers refused to reduce the amount so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The property agent suggested that I not to tell my lawyer about the deal as it may impact my mortgage with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
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.

When it comes to leasehold conveyancing in Waltham Cross what are the most frequent lease defects?
Leasehold conveyancing in Waltham Cross is not unique. Most leases are drafted differently and legal mistakes in the legal wording can sometimes mean that certain sections are not included. For example, if your lease is missing any of the following, it could be defective:
Repairing obligations to or maintain parts of the property
You will encounter difficulties when selling your property if you have a defective lease primarily because it impacts on the ability to obtain a mortgage on the property. Nationwide Building Society, Virgin Money, and Alliance & Leicester all have express requirements when it comes to what is expected in a lease. Where a lender has been advised by their lawyers that the lease is defective they may refuse to provide security, obliging the buyer to withdraw.
