I am downsizing from our house in Hall Green and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was constructed land that was not decontaminated. A local conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the purchasers instructed a factory type conveyancing practice rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Hall Green. Having lived in Hall Green for three years we know of no issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to seek confirmation that the buyers are looking for.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer already. What do they say? You should 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 illness)
I'm purchasing a new build house in Hall Green with a mortgage from Santander. The sellers refused to move on the amount so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The estate agent suggested that I not inform my lawyer about this side-deal as it could put at risk my loan with the bank. 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.
How simple is it to change solicitor as I need to retain one who is on the Coventry Building Society conveyancing list. I hired a high street conveyancing solicitor in Hall Green five minutes from me but he is not approved by Coventry Building Society

We're novice buyers - agreed a price, but the estate agent advised that the owners will only move forward if we instruct their recommended solicitors as they need an ‘expedited deal’. We would rather use a family solicitor accustomed to conveyancing in Hall Green
We suspect that the owner is unaware of this ultimatum. Should the owner desire ‘a quick sale', turning down a serious buyer is counter productive. Try to communicate with the owners directly and make sure they understand (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to progress, with finances arranged © you do not need to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you will continue to use your preferred Hall Green conveyancing solicitors - rather thanthe ones that will provide their estate agent a kickback or hit his conveyancing thresholds demanded by head office.
How does one remove a departed person's name from the title deeds for a house in Hall Green?
Where a Hall Green property is jointly owned and one of the proprietors dies, their name will not automatically be removed from the Land Registry title. It is not necessary to remove their name as when it comes to a disposal you would simply be asked to supply proof as to the reason the co proprietor is missing from the contract, typically this is in the form of the probate documents.
With a view to making the sale conveyancing more straight forward for the sale of the property you can apply to have the deceased name erased from the title entries by submitting an application to HMLR with evidence of the death. There is no fee from the Registry for this service.
