Last August we completed a house move in Hanslope. We have since encountered a number of issues with the house which we suspect were missed in the conveyancing searches. Do we have any recourse? Can you clarify the nature of searches that should have been ordered for conveyancing in Hanslope?
The question is vague as what problems have arisen and if they are specific to conveyancing in Hanslope. Conveyancing searches and due diligence initiated during the buying process are supposed to help avoid problems. As part of the process, a seller answers a form referred to as a SPIF. If the information proves to be inaccurate, you may have a misrepresentation claim against the vendor for any losses that you have suffered. The survey should have identified any problems with the structure of the property. Assuming a detailed survey was carried out and the issues were not identified, you may have a claim against the surveyor. However, if you did not have a full survey, you may be responsible for fixing any defects that have now been noted. We would always encourage buyers to take every possible step to ensure they are completely aware of the condition of a property before purchase regardless of whether they are buying in Hanslope.
If you had a top tip for selecting a conveyancing solicitor in Hanslope what would it be?
We would encourage you not to go for the cheapest Hanslope conveyancing costs illustration. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in ahead of the deal.
Can you point me to a directory of TSB panel solicitors in Hanslope on the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook Website?
No. There is no such facility on the CML or Building Society Association websites. A small selection of banks make their panel listings open the public over the internet. Where you are in need of a Hanslope conveyancer on the TSB please use our tool.
I currently have a mortgage with Kent Reliance for my property in Hanslope. Conveyancing was finalised some time ago. Should I wish to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Kent Reliance?
Kent Reliance must be informed of your intention in advance of letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Kent Reliance’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Kent Reliance will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Kent Reliance directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Kent Reliance conveyancing panel solicitor.
I am buying a new build house in Hanslope benefiting from help to buy. The sellers refused to move on the amount so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The estate agent advised me not disclose to my solicitor about the side-deal as it would put at risk my mortgage with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder 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 am looking for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and found one close by in Hanslope I like with a park and railway links in the vicinity, however it's only got 52 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Hanslope in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a mortgage that many years may be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you could ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.
