We are planning to acquire a flat and need a conveyancing solicitor in Cottesmore who is on the Nationwide approved panel. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a firm?
Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Nationwide . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Cottesmore.
Will my conveyancer be making enquiries concerning flooding as part of the conveyancing in Cottesmore.
The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for lawyers carrying out conveyancing in Cottesmore. There are those who purchase a property in Cottesmore, fully expectant that at some time, it may be flooded. However, aside from the physical damage, where a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, adequate insurance cover, or sell the property. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the buyer.
Lawyers are not qualified to impart advice on flood risk, but there are a various searches that can be undertaken by the purchaser or by their conveyancers which should give them a better appreciation of the risks in Cottesmore. The standard information given to a purchaser’s conveyancer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) contains a usual question of the vendor to discover if the premises has suffered from flooding. In the event that flooding has previously occurred which is not revealed by the owner, then a buyer may bring a legal claim for losses resulting from an inaccurate answer. A purchaser’s lawyers may also conduct an environmental report. This will reveal if there is a recorded flood risk. If so, more detailed investigations should be made.
I moved into my apartment on 6 February and my personal details is not yet on the land registry website. Should I be concerned? My conveyancing solicitor in Cottesmore said it will be concluded inside ten days. Are properties in Cottesmore particularly slow to register?
There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Cottesmore registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can adjust depending on who lodges the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry must send notices to any interested persons or bodies. As of today roughly three quarters of submission are completed within two weeks but occasionally there can be longer delays. Historically registration is effected once the buyer has moved in to the property so 'speed' is not always an essential issue but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor should speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.
I'm purchasing a new build house in Cottesmore benefiting from help to buy. The sellers would not budge the amount so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The property agent advised me not inform my conveyancer about the extras as it will jeopardize my loan with the lender. Is this normal?.
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.
I am hoping to complete next month on a ground floor flat in Cottesmore. Conveyancing solicitors assured me that they are sending me a report within the next couple of days. What should I be looking out for?
