If you had a top tip for choosing a conveyancing solicitor in Frampton Cotterell what would it be?
It would be unwise to be tempted by the cheapest Frampton Cotterell conveyancing costs illustration. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.
Can you point me to a directory of Leeds Building Society panel conveyancers in Frampton Cotterell on the Building Society Association’s Website?
Unfortunately not yet. There is no such directory service on the Council of Mortgage Lenders or Building Society Association websites. A small selection of lending institutions make their panel listings viewable over the internet. Where you are seeking to appoint a Frampton Cotterell solicitor on the Leeds Building Society please use our facility.
We previously appointed conveyancing lawyers located in Frampton Cotterell on the Leeds Building Society solicitor panel. They have just invoiced me a supplemental fee for handling the Leeds Building Society mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee specified by Leeds Building Society?
As unfair as it may seem, as long as it’s in their Terms and Conditions or estimate then yes your lawyer can levy a fee for this. This fee is not set by Leeds Building Society but by your Frampton Cotterell conveyancing practitioner. Plenty of firms on the Leeds Building Society panel will charge ’dealing with mortgage’ fee and others do not.
We are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our property in Frampton Cotterell and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was constructed on contaminated land. A high street Frampton Cotterell lawyer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the buyers used a nationwide conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Frampton Cotterell. Having lived in Frampton Cotterell for six years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to seek confirmation need.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor already. Are they able to advise? You must enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same ailment)
I am purchasing a new build house in Frampton Cotterell benefiting from help to buy. The builders refused to reduce the amount so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The estate agent told me not reveal to my conveyancer about this deal as it would impact my loan with the lender. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer 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.
How can the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 impact my business premises in Frampton Cotterell and how can your lawyers assist?
The 1954 Act affords security of tenure to business lessees, granting the right to make a request to court for a continuation of occupancy when the lease comes to an end. There are limited grounds that a landlord can refrain from granting a lease renewal and the rules are complicated. Fees are different for commercial conveyancing.
