Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Hertfordshire

My financial adviser requires my Hertfordshire law firm’s panel member for the Nat West conveyancing panel. How do I discover this. I have contacted my local Hertfordshire branch but they have not responded to me.

The sensible thing to do is ask for this information from your Hertfordshire conveyancing practitioner . Most Hertfordshire law firms will keep a file or database of lender panel information which would include, if applicable, their conveyancing panel details for each mortgage company.

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am unseasoned as a first time buyer of a garden flat in Hertfordshire. Do I pick up the keys to the property on completion from my conveyancer? If this is the case, I will appoint a local conveyancing solicitor in Hertfordshire?

There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Conveyancing lawyers for you will arrange to send the completion advance to the seller's solicitors, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you should be invited to pick up the keys from the property Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen between 1 and 3pm.

We are unaware of any lender fees to be on their panel, although some do charge an administration fee to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel submission.

After what feels like an age I have had an offer on an apartment in Hertfordshire agreed to, the owners do however have a tied purchase. The vendors have put an offer on on an apartment, however it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other flats booked. I have chosen a local conveyancing solicitor in Hertfordshire. What should be my next step? When should I get the mortgage application with Coventry BS going?

It is normal to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses too early (mortgage application is in the region of £1k, then valuation, Hertfordshire conveyancing search costs, etc). The first thing to do is ensure that your solicitor is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel. Regarding the subsequent stages this very much dictated by the specifics of your case, desire for the property and on the state of the market. During a rising market the majority of buyers would apply for the mortgage with Coventry BS and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they ask their conveyancing practitioner to press on with searches.

I'm buying my first flat in Hertfordshire with a loan from Santander. The sellers refused to budge the price so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The sale representative told me not to tell my conveyancer about this side-deal as it may 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.

At this site receive a conveyancing quote via a Solicitor or Licensed Conveyancer that appreciates the nuances for your conveyancing in Hertfordshire.

Is it best to choose a Hertfordshire conveyancing lawyer who is local to the property I am buying? I have an old university friend who can perform the legal formalities but his firm is located a couple of hundredkilometers away.

The benefit of a high street Hertfordshire conveyancing practice is that you can drop in to execute documents, present your ID and pester them if necessary. They will also have local knowledge which is a bonus. However nothing is more important than finding someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If if people you trust used your friend and the majority were happy that must outweigh using an unfamiliar Hertfordshire conveyancing solicitor just because they are based in the area.
