My nephew is in the process of securing a newly built flat in Brondesbury with a home loan from Co-operative. His conveyancer has advised him of a delay in completing the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. Who needs to receive the form?
The form is intended to provide information to the main parties engaged in the purchase. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the Co-operative conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the surveyor when requested. The developer will be required to start the process by downloading the form and completing it. The form will therefore need to be available for the valuer at the time of his or her site visit. The form should be sent to the Co-operative conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.
It is 10 years ago since I purchased my property in Brondesbury. Conveyancing lawyers have recently been instructed on the sale but I am unable to locate the deeds. Is this a problem?
Don’t worry too much. First the deeds may be kept by the mortgage company or they could stored with the conveyancers who handled your purchase. Secondly the chances are that the land will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to prove you are the registered owner by your conveyancing solicitors acquiring up to date copy of the land registers. Most conveyancing in Brondesbury relates to registered property but in the rare situation where your property is not registered it is more tricky but is not insurmountable.
I am expecting a DIP from Nottingham this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Nottingham recommend any Brondesbury solicitors on the Nottingham conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?
You will need to appoint Brondesbury solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Nottingham conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Nottingham through the process.
My partner and I are spending time looking at flats in Brondesbury and I am now considering a potential offer. Is it wise to have my property lawyer on ‘stand by’? I will be getting a home loan with Co-operative.
It would be sensible to commence your search sooner rather than later. Once you decide who you want to use and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and forward their details on to the EA. As you are taking out a mortgage with Co-operative, make sure you remember to check that your lawyer is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel.
It is unclear whether my bank obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called my Brondesbury building society branch on numerous occasions and was told it wasn't an issue and they will lend. My Brondesbury conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- called to say that they would not lend based on their published requirements. I have no idea who is right.
As long as the conveyancing practitioner is on the lender panel, she or he must adhere to the CML Handbook provisions for the lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the mortgage company to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.
I'm converting the mortgage on my primary house to a BTL loan with Britannia and I will use the ballance of the raised equity as a deposit on a second house. The area we are looking at is Brondesbury. Will your solicitors be able to act for the two lenders and link together the transactions?
Do use our comparison tool on this page to be sure that the conveyancers are on the relevant lender panels. On the basis that they are the solicitor should be able to connect the two deals but you should have a chat with you conveyancer and make clear your expectations and requirements.
