As someone not used to the Brighstone conveyancing process what’s your top tip you can give me concerning the ownership transfer in Brighstone
Not many law firms shout this from the rooftops but conveyancing in Brighstone or throughout England and Wales is an adversarial process. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there exists plenty of opportunity for friction between you and other parties involved in the transaction. E.g., the seller, estate agent and on occasion a mortgage company. Selecting a lawyer for your conveyancing in Brighstone should not be taken lightly as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the SOLE party in the transaction whose interest is to act in your best interests and to protect you.
Sometimes a third party with a vested interest may attempt to persuade you that you should follow their advice. For instance, the selling agent may claim to be assisting by suggesting your conveyancer is slow. Or your mortgage broker may tell you to do take action that is contrary to your conveyancers recommendation. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties when it comes to the legal transfer of property.
My wife and I have recently appointed a conveyancing solicitor in Brighstone. I I am struggling to find out if they are accepted on the Halifax conveyancing panel. Could you assist?
You should e-mail the solicitor and ask them if they are on the lender panel. Otherwise you should get in touch with Halifax who may be able to confirm.
I'm buying a new build house in Brighstone with the aid of help to buy. The developers would not move on the amount so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The house builders rep suggested that I not disclose to my conveyancer about the extras as it may affect my loan with the lender. Should I keep quiet?.
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.
My step-father has encouraged me to use his lawyers for conveyancing in Brighstone. Should I choose my own solicitor?
