In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Marshalls Park? Is this really warranted?
Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering regulations require solicitors and licensed conveyancers to check the identification documents of the person or body they are dealing with prior to agreeing to accepting their conveyancing instruction. The Client Care letter that you need to sign should reaffirm this. Your lender will also require certain documents to be viewed. Should you are unwilling to provide identification documents, your conveyancer can not take you on as a client.
The Marshalls Park conveyancing solicitors that I appointed last week on my purchase in Marshalls Park have suddenly shut down. I chose them because I had to have a solicitor on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel and my preferred Marshalls Park lawyer was not. I gave my credit card details for them to take £195 for searches. What should be my next steps?
If you have an estate agent involved then let them know straight away so that they advise the vendors that there may be a slight delay due to reasons beyond your control. Hopefully they will be sympathetic and urge their lawyer to send a new set of papers to your new solicitors. You will need to appoint new lawyers that are on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel and notify the lender. If you have paid over any money, it will hopefully be held by the SRA as money in an intervened firm's bank accounts is transferred to the SRA. Then, the SRA or the intervention agent looks at the intervened firm's accounts to work out who the money belongs to. To claim your money you will need to contact the SRA. If the SRA cannot return money you are owed from the firm's bank accounts, or if they can only return part of the money, you can apply to the Compensation Fund for a grant. Your new solicitors may be able to assist.
I'm purchasing my first flat in Marshalls Park with a loan from Virgin Money. The developers would not move on the price so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The sale representative advised me not reveal to my conveyancer about the side-deal as it may jeopardize my mortgage with the lender. Should I keep quiet?.
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.
Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Marshalls Park. Before I set the wheels in motion I would like to find out the number of years remaining on the lease.
Assuming the lease is registered - and 99.9% are in Marshalls Park - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
