Our grandson is about to exchange on a new build apartment in Hengoed with a home loan from TSB. His conveyancer has advised him of a delay in completing the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. Who needs to receive the form?

The document is intended to provide information to the main parties engaged in the transaction. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the TSB conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the surveyor when requested. The developer will be required to start the process by downloading the form and completing it. The form will therefore need to be available for the valuer at the time of his or her site visit. The form should be sent to the TSB conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.

My Solicitor in Hengoed is not listed on the HSBC Bank Conveyancing Panel. Is it possible for me to continue with my family solicitor even though they are not on the HSBC Bank panel?

The limited options available to you here include:

  1. Complete the purchase with your preferred Hengoed lawyers but HSBC Bank will need to use a lawyer on their list of acceptable firms. This will inevitably rack up the total legal charges and result in frustration.
  2. Find a new lawyer to act in the conveyancing, obviously checking they are HSBC Bank approved.
  3. Try to convince your HSBC Bank solicitor to try to join the HSBC Bank panel

There are plenty of conveyancing solicitors in Hengoed but how do I know who I should use?

It would be unwise to be tempted by the lowest Hengoed conveyancing quote. You really do get what you’re paying 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 I be sure that the Hengoed conveyancing solicitor on the Yorkshire BS panel is any good?

When it comes to conveyancing in Hengoed getting recommendations is a sensible starting point. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one which is cheap as chips. We would always advise that you speak with the solicitor handling your conveyancing.

We have agreed to purchase a house in Hengoed. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender UBS be concerned?

As your lender is UBS your lawyer must follow the conveyancing instructions contained in Section two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for UBS. The CML Handbook includes minimum provisions for solar panel roof-space leases, and property lawyers are required to report to UBS where a lease does not meet these requirements. The conditions relate to the installation of panels on properties countrywide and is not isolated to Hengoed.

I am looking for a flat up to £305k and identified one round the corner in Hengoed I like with a park and transport links nearby, however it's only got 61 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Hengoed suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?

Should you require a home loan the shortness of the lease may be problematic. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.

I need to retain a conveyancing solicitor for freehold conveyancing in Hengoed. I've stumble across a web site which looks to be the perfect offering If it is possible to get all the legals completed via web that would be preferable. Should I be wary? What are the potential pitfalls?

As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?
