Recently asked questions about conveyancing in West Hill

Last April we completed a house move in West Hill. We have noticed several problems with the house which we believe were omitted in the conveyancing searches. Do we have any recourse? What searches should? have been carried out as part of conveyancing in West Hill?

The query is vague as to the nature of the problems and if they are unique to conveyancing in West Hill. Conveyancing searches and due diligence undertaken during the legal transfer of property are supposed to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, the vendor answers a questionnaire referred to as a SPIF. If the information ends up being misleading, you may have a misrepresentation claim against the owner for any losses that you have suffered. The survey should have identified any problems with the structure of the property. Assuming a detailed survey was carried out and the issues were not identified, you may have a claim against the surveyor. However, if you did not have a full survey, you may be responsible for fixing any defects that have now been noted. We would always encourage buyers to take every possible step to ensure they are completely aware of the condition of a property before purchase regardless of whether they are buying in West Hill.

My apartment in West Hill is up for sale and I have a buyer. Does my lawyer need to be required to be on the HSBC conveyancing panel in order to deal with repayment of my mortgage?

Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the HSBC conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their specifications fairly frequently in recent years.

When it comes to mortgage companies such as RBS, do West Hill conveyancers have to pay a fee to be on the conveyancing panel?

We are unaware of any bank fees to register on their panel, although some do levy an administration fee to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel submission.

We expect to receive a DIP from RBS this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do RBS recommend any West Hill solicitors on the RBS conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?

You will need to appoint West Hill solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the RBS conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and RBS through the process.

I am selling my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in March 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, Skipton are being a right pain. The West Hill solicitor who is on the Skipton conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Skipton are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Skipton have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Skipton have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Skipton may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to our house are lost. The lawyers who handled the conveyancing in West Hill 5 years ago no longer exist. What do I do?

Gone are the days when you need to hold title original deeds to evidence that you are the owner of your registered land or property, as the Land Registry have everything they need in a digital format.

I'm purchasing a new build house in West Hill with a loan from Birmingham Midshires. The developers refused to reduce the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The house builders rep advised me not inform my solicitor about the deal as it will jeopardize my loan with Birmingham Midshires. 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.

My business partner and I are wishing to take over a lease of an office on the high street. Can you recommend lawyers offering no-sale-no fees for commercial conveyancing in West Hill for below £1,200?
