I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Broadway. I have a mortgage offer with Virgin Money. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should have one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Virgin Money, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel.
Planning on purchasing a maisonette in Broadway. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the RBS conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Broadway conveyancing practitioner is on the RBS conveyancing panel.
Virgin Money have agreed my home loan in principle, my offer on a property in Broadway has been agreed to, now what?
Your property agent will wish to know who your solicitors are (ensure that the conveyancers are on the bank’s panel). Contact Virgin Money or the financial adviser and finalise any relevant paperwork. Virgin Money will appoint a valuer who will get in contact with the estate agent or vendor to book a slot for the valuation to take place. Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes approximately a fortnight to receive the mortgage offer. Virgin Money will send the offer to you and your solicitors. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Broadway.
I am purchasing my first flat in Broadway with a loan from Bank of Ireland. The developers refused to move on the amount so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The property agent told me not to tell my conveyancer about the extras as it will adversely affect my loan with Bank of Ireland. Should I keep quiet?.
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%.
