After scouring mumsnet.com for an affordable lawyer in Haggerston, most post that I should look for a CQS accredited solicitor. Can you explain what CQS is?
The Law Society's Conveyancing Quality Scheme is the recognised kitemark for legal experts in the legal transfer of properties, trusted by some of the UK's biggest lenders. Four years ago the Conveyancing Quality Scheme was officially recognised by the Legal Ombudsman. The scheme does not cover licenced conveyancers. Haggerston is one of the many areas of the UK where there are CQS solicitors.
I have justfound out that Action Conveyancing have been shut down. They carried out my conveyancing in Haggerston for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 9 months ago. How can I establish that my home is registered correctly in the name of the former proprietor?
The easiest method to check if the property is in your name, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Haggerston conveyancing specialists.
I'm buying a new build house in Haggerston with a loan from Barclays Direct. The sellers would not budge the amount so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The sale representative told me not inform my lawyer about this deal as it will put at risk my mortgage with Barclays Direct. 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.
I have just appointed agents to market my ground floor flat in Haggerston. Conveyancing is yet to be initiated, however I have just had a quarterly service charge demand – Do I pay up?
Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should discharge the invoice as you normally would given that all rents and service payments will be allotted on completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.
