We wanted to use a conveyancing solicitor in Bishops Castle for our home move. Our broker has since notified us that our mortgage company Clydesdale won't deal with them. Why is this not regarded as unduly restrictive?
Before the recession most mortgage companies had a different appetite for risk. Almost all Bishops Castle conveyancing firms would have been on most bank panels. The financial services regulator in 2010 completed a thematic investigation into mortgage fraud which concluded: know the conveyancing solicitors dealt with. Consequently, lenders have regularly sought more information from law firms about their operations and their employees as well as set certain criteria such a completing on a minimum amount of conveyancing. Many Bishops Castle conveyancing firms that have been excluded from lender panels have a 100% healthy track record, no complaints and no claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing. Bishops Castle is amongst the many areas where the solicitors we list are are approved Clydesdale.
I am buying my first flat in Bishops Castle with a mortgage from HSBC Bank. The sellers refused to reduce the amount so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The property agent advised me not to tell my conveyancer about this deal as it would put at risk my mortgage with the bank. Is this normal?.
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.
