Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Langley

A friend advised me that if I am buying in Langley I should ask my conveyancer to execute a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. What does it cover?

It incorporates an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the Langley Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the type of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average House Prices, Crime statistics, Local Education with maps and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful data regarding Langley.

I am buying a new build house in Langley with a mortgage from Nottingham Building Society. The builders would not reduce the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The house builders rep suggested that I not disclose to my lawyer about this side-deal as it will jeopardize my mortgage with the lender. 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've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on last month in what should have been a quick, chain free conveyancing. Langley is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Langley are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Langley you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Langley 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 residence.

How do I use your search facility to select a conveyancing solicitor in Langley on the panel for my mortgage?

1st pick a bank such as Accord Mortgages Ltd, The Royal Bank of Scotland or Nottingham Building Society then choose your location e.g. Langley. Conveyancing firms in Langley and beyond should be shown.

We are 18 days into a residential purchase having been referred to conveyancers by the selling agent to handle our conveyancing in Langley. We are not happy. Can you you assist me in finding new solicitors?

A lawyer would have to be very bad to suggest replacing them. Has your mortgage offer been generated? If so you must make them aware of the new contact details and ensure the mortgage documents are re-issued. Your conveyancer needs to be on the lenders approved list to avoid supplemental charges and delays. So that should be your first question of the new lawyers. The search tool should help you find a lender approved conveyancer for your home move in Langley
