Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Cotham

My husband and I are purchasing a newly constructed duplex in Cotham and my lawyer is telling me that she has to the mortgage company to reveal incentives from the developer. The Estate Agents are hassling me to exchange contracts and my preference is not to prolong the conveyancing. Is my lawyer right?

You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your property lawyer. A precondition to being on a lender panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook provisions. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.

My partner and I are selling our property in Cotham and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being constructed on contaminated land. Any high street Cotham conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the buyers are using an online conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Cotham. We have lived in Cotham for 4 years we know that this is a non issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to obtain confirmation that the buyers are looking for.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You need to enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same illness)
