Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Finchampstead

My brother-in-law has suggested I instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Finchampstead. I I am struggling to find out if they are accepted on the Birmingham Midshires conveyancing panel. Can you assist?

You should phone your lawyer and ask them if they can act for the bank. Alternatively you can call Birmingham Midshires who may be able to confirm.

Two weeks ago we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Coventry BS. Finchampstead conveyancing practitioners were chosen. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Coventry BS?

There is no definitive answer here. Have Coventry BS done the valuation? Have you advised Coventry BS as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.

I can not fathom if my lender obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called into my local Finchampstead bank branch on numerous occasions and was told it wasn't an issue and they will lend. My Finchampstead conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they will not lend in accordance with their published requirements. I have no idea who is right.

Your conveyancer has to follow the CML Handbook Part 2 conditions for your bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

I have instructed a Finchampstead property lawyer having made sure that they are on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?

Aldermore will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Aldermore will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your conveyancer will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Finchampstead postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Aldermore, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Finchampstead.

My colleague advised me that if I am purchasing in Finchampstead I should carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. Can you explain what the purpose of this search is?

This is a search is sometimes quoted for as part of the standard Finchampstead conveyancing searches. It is not a small report of more than thirty pages, listing and setting out significant information about Finchampstead around the property and the people living there. It includes an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the local Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the type of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average Property Price, Crime statistics, Local Education with plans and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful information concerning Finchampstead.

I'm purchasing a new build house in Finchampstead with a loan from Birmingham Midshires. The developers would not move on the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The property agent advised me not inform my lawyer about the side-deal as it may put at risk my mortgage with the bank. Is this normal?.

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.

Is it simple use your search facility to select a conveyancing practitioner in Finchampstead on the approved list for my bank?

1st pick a lender such as Birmingham Midshires, Barnsley Building Society or Bank of Ireland then choose your preferred area a common one being Finchampstead. Conveyancing firms in Finchampstead and beyond will then be shown.
