Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Catshill

I opted for a high street solicitor for my conveyancing in Catshill yesterday. Looking through the Terms I seewe are on the hook for costs even if the sale doesn't happen. Would I be best advised to instruct an internet conveyancing company who offer no completion no cost conveyancing in Catshill?

It is usually ‘give and take’ in that if "No Completion No Fee" is offered then the conveyancing charges will tend to be be more expensive to cover the conveyances that abort. Please beware that these offerings rarely cover expenditure e.g. Catshill conveyancing search fees.

I require expedited conveyancing in Catshill as I am under an ultimatum to complete within one month. Luckily I do not need a mortgage. Can I decline from having conveyancing searches to save fees and time?

If.Given you are not getting a mortgage you have the choice not to have searches conducted although no lawyer would suggest that you don't. Drawing on years of experience of conveyancing in Catshill the following are examples of issues that can appear and therefore affect future saleability: Refused Planning Applications, Overdue Fees, Overdue Grants, Railway Schemes,...

I'm purchasing a new build house in Catshill benefiting from help to buy. The developers would not budge the amount so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The estate agent told me not reveal to my lawyer about the deal as it will jeopardize my mortgage with Virgin Money. 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%.

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.

Are there common problems that you encounter in leases for Catshill properties?

Leasehold conveyancing in Catshill is not unique. All leases are unique and legal mistakes in the legal wording can sometimes mean that certain clauses are not included. For example, if your lease is missing any of the following, it could be defective:

    A provision for the recovery of money spent for the benefit of another party.

A defective lease can cause problems when trying to sell a property primarily because it impacts on the ability to obtain a mortgage on the property. Accord Mortgages Ltd, Chelsea Building Society, and Alliance & Leicester all have very detailed conveyancing instructions when it comes to what is expected in a lease. If a mortgage lender believes that the lease is defective they may refuse to provide security, forcing the purchaser to withdraw.

    Be sure to find out if there are any onerous prohibitions in the lease. For instance it is fairly common in Catshill leases that pets are not allowed in certain buildings in Catshill. If you like the propertyin Catshill yet your cat is not allowed to make the move with you then you will be presented with a hard decision. What is the name of the managing agents? Does this lease have more than 90 years unexpired?

After what feels like an age I have had an offer on an maisonette in Catshill accepted, but there is a chain. The sellers have offered on a flat, but it’s not been accepted yet, and has viewings of other apartments in the pipeline. I have selected a nearby conveyancing lawyer in Catshill. What do I do now? When should I get the mortgage application with Yorkshire BS started with Yorkshire BS?

It is understandable to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (home loan application is approx £1k, then valuation, Catshill conveyancing search costs, etc). The first thing to do is check that your lawyer is on the Yorkshire BS approved list. As to the subsequent steps this very much depends on the uniqueness of your transaction, desire for this property and on the state of the market. In a rising market the majority of home buyers would apply for a home loan with Yorkshire BS and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they request their conveyancing practitioner to press on with searches.
