In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Dolwyddelan? What am I being asked for?
It is indeed that case that these requests have nothing to do with conveyancing in Dolwyddelan. Nowadays you can not proceed with any conveyancing transaction without first supplying evidence of your identity. Ordinarily this takes the form of a either your passport or driving licence and a bank statement. Remember if you are providing your driving licence as evidence of ID it needs to be both the paper part as well as the photo card part, one is not sufficient without the other.
Proof of your source of monies is required under Money Laundering Regulations. Don’t be offended when when this is requested of you as your conveyancer must have this information on record. Your Dolwyddelan conveyancing solicitor will need to see evidence of proof of funds before they are able to accept any funds from you into their client account and they will also ask further queries regarding the source of monies.
I am being advised by my solicitor that flying freehold insurance is required on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Dolwyddelan?
The right level of flying freehold indemnity insurance should be dictated by who who your lender is. It would differ for example between Halifax and Skipton Building Society. Conveyancing solicitors as opposed to members of the public take out such policies.
Is it the case that all Dolwyddelan conveyancing solicitors on the Co-operative conveyancing panel are governed by the SRA?
As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the Co-operative conveyancing panel they would need to be governed by the SRA. The majority of lenders do permit licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such practice would be regulated by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.
About to purchase flat in Dolwyddelan. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Dolwyddelan solicitor is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel.
I'm buying my first flat in Dolwyddelan benefiting from help to buy. The developers would not reduce the price so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The property agent told me not reveal to my solicitor about this deal as it would adversely affect my mortgage with Bank of Scotland. 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.
I have been on the look out for a flat up to £195,000 and found one near me in Dolwyddelan I like with open areas and railway links nearby, however it only has 51 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Dolwyddelan suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?
Should you need a home loan that many years may be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you may request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.
I'm refinancing my primary house to a buy to let mortgage with Birmingham Midshires and intend to use the remaining equity as a down payment on further house. The location we are looking at is Dolwyddelan. Will your lawyers be able to act for the two lenders and link together the transactions?
