I instructed a Hailsham based firm for my conveyancing in Hailsham last week. Reviewing the Terms and Conditions I seewe are responsible for fees even if the movefalls through. Would I be best advised to use a web based conveyancing brokerage offering no completion no charge conveyancing in Hailsham?
It is usually ‘give and take’ in that if "No Sale No Fee" is offered then the fee levels will generally be uplifted to cover those conveyances that do not proceed. Do bear in mind that these offerings tend not to cover expenditure by way of example Hailsham conveyancing search charges.
The Hailsham conveyancing firm handling our Hailsham conveyancing has uncovered a discrepancy when comparing the surveyor’s assumptions in the valuation report and what is in the legal papers for the property. My lawyer informs me that he must ensure that the bank is OK with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my conveyancer’s stance correct?
Your lawyer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook requirements which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for both parties.
I'm buying my first flat in Hailsham benefiting from help to buy. The sellers refused to budge the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The sale representative advised me not to tell my conveyancer about the extras as it would jeopardize my mortgage with Clydesdale. 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%.
