Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Cambridge

Our son is in the process of securing a newly built flat in Cambridge with a home loan from Leeds Building Society. His solicitor has advised him of a delay in receiving the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. What is this document - I have never come across this before?

The document is intended to provide information to the main parties involved in the purchase. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the valuer 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 Leeds Building Society 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 home in Cambridge. Conveyancing solicitors have just been appointed on the sale but I am unable to find the deeds. Is this a major issue?

Don’t worry too much. Firstly there is a possibility that the deeds will be retained by the lender or they may be in the possession of the lawyers who oversaw your purchase. Secondly in most cases the title will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you are the registered owner by your conveyancing solicitors obtaining up to date copy of the land registers. Almost all conveyancing in Cambridge relates to registered property but in the rare situation where your home is not registered it adds to the complexity but is not insurmountable.

The deeds to our home can not be found. The conveyancers who handled the conveyancing in Cambridge 4 years ago are no longer around. What are my next steps?

As long as you have a registered title the information relating to your ownership will be recorded by HMLR with a Title Number. It is easy to execute a search at the Land Registry, find your house and get current copies of the Registered Entries for a small fee. If the title is Leasehold then the Land Registry will usually retain a file copy of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be retrieved for a small fee.

How easy is it to use your search facility to get a fee calculation from a conveyancing solicitor in Cambridge on the approved list for my bank?

First pick a bank such as Barclays , Bank of Scotland or Barclays Direct then specify your location for example Cambridge. Conveyancing organisations in Cambridge and nationally should be listed.
