My partner and I are purchasing a newly built apartment in Anstey and my conveyancer is telling me that she has to the lender to reveal incentives from the seller. I am on a tight deadline to exchange contracts and I would rather not prolong deal. is my lawyer playing by the book?
You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your property lawyer. 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.
I have recentlybecome aware that Stirling Law have been shut down. They carried out my conveyancing in Anstey for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 12 months ago. How can I check that the property is registered correctly in the name of the former proprietor?
The quickest method to see if the premises is registered to you, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Anstey conveyancing specialists.
How does conveyancing in Anstey differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Anstey contact us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is ready to move into. This is because new home sellers in Anstey tend to acquire the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Anstey or who has acted in the same development.
