We are purchasing a new build flat in Felling and Pelaw and my lawyer is telling me that she has to the mortgage company to disclose incentives from the seller. I am under pressure to sign contracts and my preference is not to delay matters. is my lawyer playing by the book?
You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your conveyancer. A precondition to being on a lender panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.
When does exchange of contracts happen for domestic conveyancing in Felling and Pelaw and am I required to be at the lawyers branch?
If you are round the corner to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Felling and Pelaw you are invited in to sign contracts. That being said, the firms we work with supply countrywide coverage for conveyancing and provide just as detailed and professional a job for you when communicating with you digitally. The executing of the contract is not when everything is set in stone. Signing on the dotted line is just a prerequisite for the firm to officially exchange at the suitable time, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The procedure is is usually a five minute process, although where an extended "chain" is involved, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Felling and Pelaw)to be in the office at the appropriate time.
My home in Felling and Pelaw is up for sale and I have a buyer. Does the conveyancer have to be on the Nottingham conveyancing panel in order to deal with paying off my mortgage?
Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Nottingham conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their requirements fairly frequently in recent years.

Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. The Vendor must covenant to keep unsold units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants.
