Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Leconfield

My son is buying a house that has just been built in Leconfield with a home loan from Kent Reliance. 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 purchase. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the Kent Reliance 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 Kent Reliance conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.

Do the Building Society Association intend to launch a search tool with a view to list practices on the Melton Mowbray Building Society conveyancing panel for instance in Leconfield?

We have not been informed any intention on the part of the BSA to promote such a register.

My wife and I are in the throws of viewing flats in Leconfield and I am now considering a potential offer. Is it best to have a property lawyer on ‘stand by’? I will be getting a home loan with TSB.

It would be advisable to start your search sooner rather than later. After you have chosen your lawyer and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their contact information on to the selling agent. As you are taking out a mortgage with TSB, make sure you remember to check that your lawyer is on the TSB conveyancing panel.

The mortgage over my property is with Lloyds for my property in Leconfield. Conveyancing has been completed 12 months ago. If I am intending 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 Lloyds?

You must advise Lloyds in advance of letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Lloyds’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Lloyds 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 Lloyds directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Lloyds conveyancing panel firm.

Our sealed bid on a semi in Leconfield has been agreed to, but there is a chain. The owners have placed an offer on on an apartment, but it’s not yet tied up, and have viewings of other properties in the pipeline. I have chosen a local conveyancing solicitor in Leconfield. What should be my next step? When do I get the mortgage application with Yorkshire BS going?

It is understandable to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (mortgage application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then valuation, Leconfield conveyancing search fees, etc). The first course of action is to ensure that your property lawyer is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. As to the subsequent steps this very much depends on the circumstances of your transaction, desire for the property and on the state of the market. In a rising market many purchasers will apply for the mortgage with Yorkshire BS and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they ask their property lawyer to move forward with searches.

I have a terraced Victorian property in Leconfield. Conveyancing lawyer represented me and Norwich and Peterborough Building Society. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw two entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold under the matching property. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?

You should read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Leconfield and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also check the situation with your conveyancing solicitor who conducted the conveyancing.

In sourcing the world wide web for the term cheap conveyancing in Leconfield it brings up numerous property lawyersin the vicinity. How do I determine which is the suitable solicitor for purchase transaction?

The best way of finding a suitable conveyancer is via personal recommendation, so seek the guidance of colleagues and relatives who have bought a property in Leconfield or a local estate agent or mortgage broker. Fees for conveyancing in Leconfield differ, so it's advisable to secure at least four fee estimates from different conveyancers.
