My IFA has requested my Cyncoed lawyer’ panel member for the Nationwide conveyancing panel. How do I find this out. I have contacted my local Cyncoed branch but they have not responded to me.
Have you tried calling your Cyncoed lawyer about this?. Most Cyncoed law firms will retain a file or database of lender panel information which would include, if applicable, their conveyancing panel details for each lender.
My son-in-law is buying a new build apartment in Cyncoed with a mortgage from Barclays. His solicitor has advised him of a delay in receiving the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. Who needs to receive the form?
The form is intended to provide information to the main parties involved in the transaction. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the Barclays conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the valuer when requested. The developer will be required to start the process by downloading the form and completing it. The form will therefore need to be available for the valuer at the time of his or her site visit. The form should be sent to the Barclays conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.
Do the Building Society Association intend to launch a searchable register to to identify firms on the Darlington Building Society conveyancing panel for instance in Cyncoed?
We would not expect to be advised of any plans on the part of the BSA to develop such a register.
I am planning on selling our house in Cyncoed and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being constructed land that was not decontaminated. A high street Cyncoed conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the buyers are using a national conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Cyncoed. Having lived in Cyncoed for 4 years we know that this is a non issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to seek confirmation that there is no issue.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing solicitor currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You need to check with 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 ailment)
I opted to have a survey completed on a property in Cyncoed before instructing conveyancers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold overhang to the property. My surveyor advised that some lenders may refuse to give a mortgage on such a home.
It depends who your proposed lender is. Bank of Scotland has different requirements from Nationwide. If you call us we can check via the relevant lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Cyncoed. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.
