Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Winchcombe

Am I correct in assuming that the fact that my conveyancer in Winchcombe is not identified on my mortgage company's conveyancing panel that there is a problem with the standard of his work?

That is most likely a wrong assumption to make. There are plenty of reasonable explanations. A recent report by the solicitors regulator indicated that over three quarters of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The most common reasons for removal are: (1) low volume of transactions (2) the lawyer is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. Should you be concerned you should contact the Winchcombe conveyancing practice and enquire why they are no longer on the approved list for your bank.

If you not getting a home loan, then almost all of the Winchcombe conveyancing searches are at your discretion. Your lawyer will 'advise', perhaps strongly, that you should have searches done, but he has a professional duty to take that path of guidance. One thing to consider; if you are intend to dispose of the house at a future date, it will be of importance to your prospective purchaser what the searches disclose. Sometimes properties with functional issues can still throw up unfavourable search results. A good conveyancing solicitor in Winchcombe will provide you some practical advice here.

I am purchasing a new build house in Winchcombe with a mortgage from Coventry Building Society. The sellers refused to budge the price so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The house builders rep advised me not inform my lawyer about this deal as it will adversely affect my mortgage with Coventry Building Society. 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 decided to have a survey carried out on a house in Winchcombe before retaining conveyancers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold element to the property. The surveyor advised that some lenders may not grant a loan on such a property.

If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Winchcombe.
