What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Kirk Ella? What am I being asked for?

Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering laws require solicitors and licensed conveyancers to check the identity of the potential client they are dealing with prior to agreeing to accepting their conveyancing business. The Client Care letter that you are required to sign should confirm this. Your lender will also require certain documents to be checked. Where you are unwilling to provide identification documents, your solicitor will not be able to take you on as a client.

I currently have a mortgage with Santander for my property in Kirk Ella. Conveyancing has been completed a year ago. If I am intending to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform Santander?

You must advise Santander before renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Santander’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Santander will permit you to let 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 Santander directly. You need not do this via a Santander conveyancing panel firm.

Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to my house are lost. The lawyers who handled the conveyancing in Kirk Ella 5 years ago are no longer around. What are my options?

As long as the title is registered the information relating to your ownership will be evidenced by HMLR with a Title Number. It is easy to conduct a search at the Land Registry, identify your house and secure current copies of the Registered Entries for less than a fiver. Where the property is Leasehold then the Land Registry will usually hold a file duplicate of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be ordered for £20 inclusive of VAT.

I'm buying a new build house in Kirk Ella with a mortgage from Britannia. The developers would not reduce the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The property agent suggested that I not to tell my lawyer about this extras as it could put at risk my mortgage with the lender. 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.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a simple, chain free conveyancing. Kirk Ella is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Kirk Ella are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Kirk Ella you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Kirk Ella may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
