I'm buying my first flat in West Ham with a loan from Britannia. The builders would not move on the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of extras instead. The estate agent told me not inform my solicitor about the extras as it will jeopardize 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.
Myself and my wife have just had an offer accepted on a flat and had an appointment on Wednesday with HSBC for the mortgage. They advised us that when it comes to selecting a solicitor that unless they are on their approved list of lawyers then we will incur a further charge of about two hundred pounds. This is because they will then have to select a property lawyer to act for them as well as the one we appoint on our behalf and we will be on the hook for their invoice. I have requested HSBC to provide me with a list so I can seek estimates only from their approved lawyers but was told that I need to check with each individual conveyancer to see if they are on the panel. Is there a simple way of finding out who is on a lender panel?
You can enquire of HSBC what their criteria for panel membership is for a conveyancer.Then ask the property lawyer of your choice whether they fit that criteria and have they acted on mortgages for HSBC in the past. If the answer to those is yes, then just clarify this with HSBC. Alternatively please utilise our search facility and we may be able to find you a conveyancer in West Ham on the panel for HSBC.
