As someone not used to conveyancing in Wigston what is your top tip you can give me for the home moving process in Wigston

Not many law firms shout this from the rooftops but conveyancing in Wigston and elsewhere in Leicestershire is an adversarial experience. Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there exists lots of opportunity for conflict between you and other parties involved in the ownership transfer. E.g., the seller, property agent and even potentially your lender. Selecting a lawyer for your conveyancing in Wigston an important selection as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the SOLE person in the transaction whose role it is to look after your best interests and to protect you.

On occasion a potential adversary may try and convince you that it is in your interests to do things their way. For instance, the selling agent may claim to be assisting by suggesting your lawyer is slow. Or your financial adviser may advise you to do take action that is against your solicitors recommendation. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties in the conveyancing process.

I am due to move home in October. Should my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the day of completion. Incidentally, can you suggest a removal company in Wigston. Conveyancing firm was organised before I stumbled across your page.

On the day of completion you will need to collect the keys from your estate agent however this should only happen once the previous owners lawyers advise the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be collected. You should tell the removal company that you are ready to move in. As a matter of policy we do not recommend a particular removal organisation but can assist you in finding a residential property solicitor in Wigston or a firm that specialises in conveyancing in Wigston.

Are all Wigston Conveyancing Quality Solicitors on the Lloyds conveyancing list of approved firms?

It is true that some lenders now utilise the accreditation scheme as the kick off point for Panel approval such as HSBC and Santander. The Law Society’s CQS membership however gives no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. That being said,the Council of Mortgage Lenders have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for solicitors wishing to remain on their approved list of conveyancing solicitors.

We had appointed conveyancing lawyers with offices in Wigston on the Nationwide solicitor panel. They have just billed me a separate charge for handling the Nationwide mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by Nationwide?

Provided it is contained in their Terms and Conditions or estimate then yes your property lawyer can charge a fee for this. The fee is not set by Nationwide but by your Wigston conveyancing practitioner. Numerous firms on the Nationwide panel will quote an ‘acting for lender’ fee but many firms incorporate it on their overall fee.

I'm purchasing my first flat in Wigston with the aid of help to buy. The builders refused to reduce the amount so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The property agent suggested that I not reveal to my conveyancer about this extras as it could affect my mortgage with the lender. Is this normal?.

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.
