This question may be naive but I am new to the house moving as a first time buyer of a ground floor flat in Chantry. Do I pick up the keys to the property on completion from my conveyancer? If so, I will instruct a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Chantry?
There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Conveyancing lawyers for you will transfer the completion advance to the vendor’s conveyancers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you will be able to receive the keys from the property Agents and start moving into the property. Usually this happens early afternoon.
When it comes to lenders such as TSB, do Chantry solicitors have to pay a fee to be on the list of approved solicitors?
We are not aware of any mortgage company fees to be on their list of approved firms, although some do levy an administration fee to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel application.
How can we tell if a Chantry conveyancing solicitor on the RBS panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Chantry getting recommendations is a sensible starting point. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one advertising the lowest fees. We would always advocate that you speak with the lawyer conducting your transaction.
I am buying my first flat in Chantry with a mortgage from Britannia. The builders refused to budge the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of extras instead. The house builders rep advised me not inform my conveyancer about this extras as it may jeopardize my loan with the lender. Should I keep quiet?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder 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.
