I purchased a terraced Victorian property in Bishopsworth. Conveyancing lawyer acted for me and Clydesdale. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are two entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold under the exact same property. Is it worth asking Clydesdale to clarify?
You should review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Bishopsworth and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also question the situation with your conveyancing solicitor who completed the work.
I'm purchasing a new build house in Bishopsworth with a mortgage from Santander. The sellers would not move on the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of extras instead. The estate agent suggested that I not inform my lawyer about the side-deal as it would impact 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.
Taking into account that I will soon spend hundreds of thousands of pounds on 3 bedroom house in Bishopsworth I would like to have a conversation with the conveyancer regarding thehouse move prior to instructing the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?
We could not agree more - it is our preference to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you speaking to the lawyer who will be doing your conveyancing in Bishopsworth.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - each client is an important individual, not a matter reference. The solicitors that we put you in touch with believe that the figure you are calculated and presented to you for your conveyancing in Bishopsworth should be the figure that you end up paying.
