Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Worcester Park

My son-in-law is purchasing a house that has just been built in Worcester Park with a mortgage from Clydesdale. His lawyer has advised him of a delay in receiving the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. This document is news to me - what is it and who needs sight of it?

The document is intended to provide information to the main parties involved in the purchase. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the valuer when requested. The developer will be required to start the process by downloading the form and completing it. The form will therefore need to be available for the valuer at the time of his or her site visit. The form should be sent to the Clydesdale conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.

The deeds to my home are lost. The lawyers who conducted the conveyancing in Worcester Park 5 years ago are no longer around. What do I do?

As long as the title is registered the information relating to your ownership will be retained by HMLR with a Title Number. It is easy to conduct a search at the Land Registry, find your house and get current copies of the property title for a small fee. If the title is Leasehold then the Land Registry will also normally retain a certified duplicate of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be ordered for twenty pounds.

I am buying a new build house in Worcester Park with a mortgage from Barnsley Building Society. The developers refused to budge the price so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The estate agent suggested that I not inform my conveyancer about this deal as it could put at risk my mortgage with the lender. Should I keep quiet?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer 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 need to find a conveyancing solicitor for some conveyancing in Worcester Park. I happened to discover a site which appears to be the perfect answer If it is possible to get all this stuff done via web that would be ideal. Should I be concerned? What should out be looking out for?

As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?

I am on look out for some leasehold conveyancing in Worcester Park. Before I set the wheels in motion I require certainty as to the remaining lease term.

Assuming the lease is registered - and 99.9% are in Worcester Park - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

After months of negotiations we are unable to agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Worcester Park. Does the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal have jurisdiction to calculate the appropriate figures?

in cases where there is a absentee landlord or if there is dispute about what the lease extension should cost, under the relevant statutes it is possible to make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to make a decision on the amount due.

An example of a Lease Extension decision for a Worcester Park premises is 33 The Maisonettes Alberta Avenue in June 2014. the Tribunal decided that the premium payable for the grant of a new lease be the sum of £20,680 (Twenty Thousand six hundred and eighty pounds). This case affected 1 flat. The remaining number of years on the lease was 60.43 years.

Me and my fiance have recently had an offer agreed on a house and had meeting on Tuesday with Nationwide for the mortgage. They have informed me that when it comes to choosing a conveyancer that if they are not on their approved panel of property lawyers then we will incur an extra fee of £250+. This is is due to the fact that they would then have to select a conveyancer to act for them as well as the one we appoint on our behalf and we assume responsibility for their costs. I have requested Nationwide to send me with a list so I can seek estimates only from their approved conveyancers but was told that I need to check with each individual lawyer to see if they are on the panel. Is there a list online?

You can enquire of Nationwide what their criteria for panel membership is for a solicitor.Thereafter ask the lawyer of your choice whether they fit that criteria and have they acted on mortgages for Nationwide before. If the answer to those is yes, then just clarify this with Nationwide. Another option is to utilise our search facility and we should be able to identify a lawyer in Worcester Park on the approved list for Nationwide.
