My property lawyer in Worsley is not on the The Mortgage Works Approved Panel. Can I still retain my family solicitor even though they are excluded from the The Mortgage Works panel?
The limited options open to you here include:
- Carry on with your preferred Worsley solicitors but The Mortgage Works will need to use a lawyer on their panel. This will result in additional overall legal charges and cause frustration.
- Get an alternative solicitor to act in the conveyancing, remembering to check they are on the The Mortgage Works panel
Completion of my purchase has taken place for my property in Worsley. Conveyancing was satisfactory but I would like to complain about the lender. Who do I contact should I wish to lodge a complaint?
Most lenders have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Services Team at head office. Ordinarily complaints to a lender are sorted out effectively and efficiently. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service with full details of your complaint.
Having read lots 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 Worsley solicitor - who is on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. is that correct?
Leeds Building Society will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Leeds Building Society 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. You may wish to consider appointing your own Worsley surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.
Our sealed bid on a semi in Worsley has been accepted, the owners do however have a dependent purchase. The sellers have offered on somewhere, however it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other properties in the pipeline. I have selected a nearby conveyancing solicitor in Worsley. What should be my next step? When should I get the mortgage application with Skipton going?
It is understandable to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (mortgage application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then valuation, Worsley conveyancing search charges, etc). First, you must check that your conveyancer is on the Skipton approved list. Regarding the subsequent steps this very much depends on the circumstances of your transaction, desire for the property and on the state of the market. In a buoyant market some buyers would apply for a home loan with Skipton and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they ask their lawyer to press on with the conveyancing in Worsley.
I am purchasing a new build house in Worsley with a loan from Aldermore. The developers would not reduce the amount so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The house builders rep told me not reveal to my solicitor about the extras as it would jeopardize my loan with the bank. 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.
