Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Woodhall Spa

It has come to my attention via my mortgage broker that my Woodhall Spa solicitor is not on the lender Solicitor panel. What can I do to be certain if this is indeed the case?

The first thing you need to do is to call your Woodhall Spa lawyer directly. It is reasonable to expect your lawyer to notify you of the situation. Where they are not on the panel they may recommend you to a Woodhall Spa conveyancing firm that is on the conveyancing panel for your lender.

My partner and I are purchasing a brand new flat in Woodhall Spa and my conveyancer is telling me that she has to the bank to reveal incentives from the builder. I am on a tight deadline to exchange contracts and I would rather not prolong deal. Is my lawyer right?

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

What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Woodhall Spa? Why is this being asked of me?

Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering regulations require solicitors and licensed conveyancers to verify the ID of the person or body they are dealing with before they can accept their conveyancing business. The Client Care letter that you need to sign should stipulate this. Your lender will also require certain documents to be checked. Where you refuse to supply ID verification documents, your lawyer will not be able to take you on as a client.

Back In 2002, I bought a leasehold house in Woodhall Spa. Conveyancing and Norwich and Peterborough Building Society mortgage went though with no issue. I have received a letter from someone claiming to own the freehold. Attached was a ground rent demand for rent dating back to 1992. The conveyancing practitioner in Woodhall Spa who previously acted has now retired. Do I pay?

The first thing you should do is contact the Land Registry to be sure that this person is indeed the registered owner of the freehold reversion. It is not necessary to incur the fees of a Woodhall Spa conveyancing lawyer to do this as it can be done on-line for less than a fiver. Rest assured that in any event, even if this is the legitimate freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 the limitation period for recovery of ground rent is six years.
