Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Wilford

We are acquiring a newly constructed flat in Wilford and my solicitor is informing me that she is duty bound to the bank to disclose incentives from the seller. I am under pressure to exchange contracts and I would rather not prolong the conveyancing. Is my lawyer right?

You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your property lawyer. A precondition to being on a mortgage company panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook requirements. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.

Finally the sale completed on my house in Wilford last March but the buyer keeps Skype messaging every few hours complaining that her lawyer is waiting to hear from mysolicitor. What are the post completion sale legalities following completion?

Following your house sale your lawyer should forward the transfer documentation and all additional paperwork to the buyer’s solicitors. If applicable, your solicitor should also send confirmation that the legal charge in favour of the lender has been repaid to the buyers lawyers. There are no post completion formalities unique to conveyancing in Wilford.

is it true that all Wilford solicitor firms on the Skipton conveyancing panel are regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?

As solicitors, in order to be on the Skipton conveyancing panel they would need to be overseen by the SRA. Many banks do permit licenced conveyancers on their panel and in that case the organisation would be overseen by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.

Having digested plenty of house buying guides, I note that they all recommend that you should get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Wilford solicitor - who is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. Is that normal?

Clydesdale will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Clydesdale will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your property lawyer will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Wilford postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Clydesdale, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Wilford.

Santander have agreed my home loan in principle, my offer on a property in Wilford has been accepted, what happens next?

Your property agent will want to know who your solicitors are (make sure the conveyancing practitioners are on the lender’s approved list). Contact Santander or the financial adviser and finish off any outstanding forms. Santander will instruct a valuer who will get in contact with the selling agent or seller to book an appointment. Once conducted (assuming no problems) it takes on average a fortnight to receive the mortgage offer. Santander will issue the offer to you and your conveyancing practitioners. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Wilford.

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly picked up as part of conveyancing in Wilford?

Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the process of conveyancing in Wilford. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’

I am buying a new build house in Wilford benefiting from help to buy. The builders would not move on the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The estate agent advised me not inform my solicitor about the deal as it may adversely affect my loan 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.

I am looking into buying my first house which is in Wilford and I am already nervous. I couldn't find anything specific about Wilford. Conveyancing will be needed in due course but do you know about the Wilford area? or perhaps some other tips you can share?
