Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Wanstead

I have justbeen informed that Arc property Solicitors have been shut down. They carried out my conveyancing in Wanstead for a purchase of a freehold house 12 months ago. How can I check that the property is not still registered in the name of the previous owner?

The easiest method to check if the property is registered to you, you can carry out 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 Wanstead conveyancing specialists.

I'm buying a new build house in Wanstead with a loan from Yorkshire Building Society. The builders would not move on the amount so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The property agent suggested that I not inform my solicitor about the deal as it will affect my loan with Yorkshire Building Society. Should I keep quiet?.

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.

I decided to have a survey completed on a property in Wanstead prior to retaining conveyancers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold element to the house. Our surveyor has said that some banks may not give a mortgage on such a property.
