I have just started taking steps with a view to transferring my existing standard home loan to a BTL Nottingham Building Society mortgage. I have been informed by my broker that I must appoint a solicitor for this. I got in contact with the same Greasby conveyancing solicitor who acted on my behalf when I originally purchased the house. The fee calculation issued of £550 is surprising as its a refinance than a sale or purchase.
The estimate does seem a tad on the high side. Where you are happy to invest time scrutinising prices you may be able to get the conveyancing a bit cheaper by as much as a hundred pounds. That being said, assuming were satisfied with the legal work the firm provided you mightcome to regret choosing an a cheaper conveyancer. Remember to be sure that the firm can also act for Nottingham Building Society. Do employ our search tool to select a Greasby conveyancing firm on the Nottingham Building Society member panel, which can often include conveyancing solicitors in Greasby.
I'm purchasing my first flat in Greasby with a mortgage from HSBC Bank. The developers would not budge the amount so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The estate agent suggested that I not inform my lawyer about the extras as it would adversely affect my loan with HSBC Bank. Is this normal?.
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.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on last month in what should have been a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Greasby is where the house is located. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Greasby are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Greasby you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Greasby may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.

Our conveyancer has advised that he intends to complete and exchange simultaneously on our sale of a £150,000 garden flat in Greasby on Thursday in a week. The freeholder has quoted £312 for Landlord’s certificate, building insurance schedule and previous years service charge statements. Is the landlord entitled to charge such fees for a leasehold conveyance in Greasby?
Greasby conveyancing on leasehold maisonettes normally necessitates the buyer’s solicitor sending questions for the landlord to address. Although the landlord is under no legal obligation to respond to such questions most will be content to do so. They may invoice a reasonable charge for answering enquiries or supplying documentation. There is no set fee. The average fee for the information that you are referring to is over three hundred pounds, in some transactions it is above £800. The administration charge levied by the landlord must be accompanied by a summary of entitlements and obligations in respect of administration charges, without which the invoice is technically not due. In reality you have little option but to pay whatever is requested of you should you wish to sell the property.
