My wife and I are purchasing a property in Boxmoor. I might seem paranoid but how we can trust a lawyer? On completion day we have to put money into their account. What protection do we have from them run away with our deposit?
Be assured that all money in a Solicitors client account is 100% safe, and even if your Solicitor ran off with it, the Law Society would reimburse you fully.
Is it the case that all Boxmoor CQS (Conveyancing Quality Scheme) solicitors are on the RBS conveyancing list of approved practices?
It is true that some lenders now use CQS as the starting point for Panel approval such as HSBC and Santander. The Law Society’s CQS membership however gives no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. Nevertheless,the Council of Mortgage Lenders have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for solicitors wishing to join their panels.
Is there a list of Barclays panel solicitors in Boxmoor on the Council of Mortgage Lender’s Website?
Unfortunately not yet. There is no such tool on the Council of Mortgage Lenders or Building Society Association websites. A small selection of lending institutions make their panel listings open the public online. Where you are looking for a Boxmoor property lawyer on the Barclays please use our tool.
I have been told that property searches are a common reason for stalling in Boxmoor house deals. Is this right?
The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) has noted the findings of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature within the common causes of delays during the legal transfer of property. Local searches are unlikely to be the root cause of slowing down conveyancing in Boxmoor.
I am purchasing a new build house in Boxmoor with a loan from Accord Mortgages Ltd. The builders would not move on the amount so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The estate agent told me not disclose to my conveyancer about the side-deal as it could impact my mortgage with Accord Mortgages Ltd. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
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.
