I am helping my niece sell her house in Guiseley. Will the solicitor commission an energy performance certificate or it is for the seller to coordinate?
Following the demise of HIPs, EPC’s was retained a required part of moving house. An energy performance certificate should be commissioned before the property is advertised. It is not a task that lawyers ordinarily arrange. Where you are instructing a Guiseley conveyancing solicitor they may be willing to arrange EPC’s due to their relationships with long established Guiseley accredited person
My wife and I have arranged the release of further monies on our mortgage from Aldermore as we wish to conduct improvements to our home in Guiseley. Do we need to choose a nearby Guiseley solicitor on the Aldermore conveyancing panel to deal with the legals?
Aldermore don't usually instruct firms on their approved list of lawyers to handle the formalities. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Aldermore list.
Intending to buy a flat in Guiseley. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Guiseley solicitor is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel.
I am purchasing my first flat in Guiseley with a loan from Barclays Direct. The builders would not budge the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The house builders rep advised me not inform my lawyer about the side-deal as it will impact my loan with Barclays Direct. Should I keep quiet?.
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.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in two weeks back in what was supposed to be a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Guiseley is the location of the property. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Guiseley are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Guiseley you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Guiseley may determine 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.
