I am getting a mortgage offer from Lloyds. I hope to instruct a Licensed Conveyancer in Chapel En Le Frith. Does the Lloyds Conveyancing panel exclude Licensed Conveyancers?
The Lloyds conveyancing panel is, like many other lenders, associated to the CML or BSA, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the CLC.
The Chapel En Le Frith conveyancing firm handling our Chapel En Le Frith conveyancing has uncovered a difference between the information in the home valuation survey and what is in the conveyancing documents. My lawyer says that he must ensure that the lender is happy with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my conveyancer’s approach right?
Your lawyer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for you.
What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Chapel En Le Frith? Is this really necessary?
Chapel En Le Frith conveyancing solicitors and indeed property lawyers throughout the UK have a duty under money laundering regulations to verify the identity of any client with a view to satisfy themselves that clients are who they say they are.
Conveyancing clients are required to disclose two forms of certified identification; proof of ID (usually a Passport or Driving Licence) and evidence of address (usually a Utility Bill no older than three months).
Proof of the origin of monies is also necessary in compliance with the money laundering regulations as solicitors are obliged to investigate that the funds you are using to purchase a property (whether it be the deposit for exchange or the full purchase monies where you are buying without a mortgage) has come from a reputable source (such as employment savings) and is not the proceeds of criminal activity.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and found one near me in Chapel En Le Frith I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, however it only has 51 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Chapel En Le Frith for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?
If you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may be an issue. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you can ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.
