My wife and I are purchasing a apartment in Epworth. It might be a silly question but how we can trust a conveyancer? At some point we will need to send funds into their account. What protection do we have from them run away with our money?
Be assured that all money in a Solicitors client account is 100% safe, and even if your Solicitor ran off with it, the Law Society would reimburse you fully.
I am due to move house in September. Does my conveyancing solicitor update the removal company on the day of completion. As an aside, can you recommend a removal company in Epworth. Conveyancing firm was found before I stumbled across your site.
On the day of completion you will need to pick up the keys from the estate agent however this should only take place when the previous owners conveyancers inform the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be passed over. Subsequently you can advise the removal men that they can start moving you in. We are not in a position to recommend a specific removal company but can assist you in finding a residential property solicitor in Epworth or a legal practice that specialises in conveyancing in Epworth.
We previously instructed conveyancers with offices in Epworth on the Skipton solicitor panel. They are now charging me an additional charge for handling the Skipton mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by Skipton?
Unfortunately, so long as it is in their Terms of Engagement or estimate then yes your conveyancer can charge a fee for this. The fee is not set by Skipton but by your Epworth lawyer. Plenty of firms on the Skipton panel will quote an ‘acting for lender’ fee and others do not.
Just acquired a semi-detached house in Epworth , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to record the transfer to my name? My Epworth conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to check that my name is registered.
As far as conveyancing in Epworth registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of the country. Rather than based on location, timescales can adjust according to who lodges the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry must send notices to any other parties. At present in the region of 80% of such applications are fully addressed within 12 days but some can be subject to longer delays. Historically registration occurs after the purchaser has moved in to the property thus an expedited registration is not always top priority yet if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor could communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.
I'm buying a new build house in Epworth with a mortgage from Accord Mortgages Ltd. The developers refused to reduce the amount so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The estate agent told me not inform my conveyancer about the deal as it will impact my loan with Accord Mortgages Ltd. 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 opted to have a survey carried out on a property in Epworth in advance of retaining lawyers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold element to the property. My surveyor advised that some banks may refuse to grant a mortgage on such a house.
It varies from the lender to lender. Bank of Scotland has different instructions from Halifax. Should you wish to telephone us we can check via the relevant lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Epworth. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Epworth to see if the conveyancing costs will increase in light of this.
I purchased a property in Epworth last 8/6/2018 and to date it is still not registered with HMLR. It was part of a new estate and my conveyancer told me that it may take twelve months to register. I have contacted HMLR directly and they say that the original application was cancelled due to failure to reply to requisitions. What can I do?
