We hired a high street firm for our conveyancing in Eastcote recently. Going through the Ts and Cs I seewe are responsible for charges even if the dealfalls through. Would I be best advised to choose a web based lawyer who offer no move no charge conveyancing in Eastcote?
Generally there is a compromise along the lines that if "No Completion No Fee" is offered then the conveyancing charges will tend to be be more expensive to neutralise those cases that do not proceed. Do bear in mind that such arrangements rarely cover expenditure such as Eastcote conveyancing search fees.
Our god-son is purchasing a new build apartment in Eastcote with a mortgage from UBS. His solicitor has said that there is a delay in receiving the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. What is this document - I have never come across this before?
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 UBS conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the surveyor when asked. 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 UBS conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.
It is a dozen years since I purchased my house in Eastcote. Conveyancing lawyers have just been instructed on the sale but I am unable to find the deeds. Is this a major issue?
Don’t worry too much. Firstly the deeds may be retained by your mortgage company or they may stored with the conveyancers who oversaw your purchase. Secondly in all probability the land will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you are the registered owner by your conveyancing lawyers procuring current official copies of the land registers. The vast majority of conveyancing in Eastcote relates to registered property but in the rare situation where your home is not registered it adds to the complexity but is not insurmountable.
I have todaybecome aware that Arc property Solicitors have been shut down. They conducted my conveyancing in Eastcote for a purchase of a freehold house 9 months ago. How can I establish that my home is not still registered in the name of the previous owner?
The easiest method to see if the property is registered to you, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Eastcote conveyancing specialists.
We are four weeks into a leasehold purchase having been directed to solicitors by the local agent to handle our conveyancing in Eastcote. I am not happy. Can you you assist me in finding new conveyancers?
A lawyer would need to be really poor in order to consider changing them. Has your mortgage been sent? In the event that it has you need to inform them of the new contact details and ensure the mortgage documents are re-sent. Your new conveyancer should be on the lenders panel to avoid supplemental charges and frustration. That should be your starting point.
