Is it the case that all Bromham CQS (Conveyancing Quality Scheme) solicitors are on the HSBC conveyancing list of approved practices?
It is true that some lenders now use the accreditation scheme as the starting point for Panel approval such as HSBC and Santander. CQS accreditation however is no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. That being said,the Council of Mortgage Lenders have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for firms wishing to remain on their panels.
Can you point me to a directory of HSBC panel solicitors in Bromham on the Building Society Association’s Website?
No. There is no such tool on the Council of Mortgage Lenders or Building Society Association websites. A small selection of mortgage companies make their panel listings viewable over the internet. Where you are in need of a Bromham solicitor on the HSBC please make the most of our facility.
Is it the case that all Bromham conveyancing solicitors on the Santander conveyancing panel are regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?
As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the Santander conveyancing panel they would need to be governed by the SRA. The majority of mortgage companies do allow licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such organisation would be governed by the CLC.
How does conveyancing in Bromham differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Bromham approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is built. This is because developers in Bromham typically acquire the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Bromham or who has acted in the same development.
I have been on the look out for a flat up to £245,000 and identified one close by in Bromham I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 49 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Bromham in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will be an issue. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you can request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.
