Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Newhaven

Me and my partner are about to exchange buying a house in Newhaven but as a consequence of wreckage from some water damage at the property I have was able negotiate recompense from the seller in the sum of £2k by way of a deduction in the price. I had intended this to be addressed as part of the conveyancing process but Kent Reliance are not allowing this. Why were they informed?

Your solicitor that is on a Kent Reliance conveyancing panel is duty bound to inform Kent Reliance of any changes to the purchase price. If you prohibit your property lawyer to notify the price change to Kent Reliance then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Kent Reliance and you would have to appoint a new conveyancing practitioner for your conveyancing in Newhaven.

Is there a list of Yorkshire BS panel solicitors in Newhaven on the Building Society Association’s Website?

No. There is no such directory service on the Council of Mortgage Lenders or Building Society Association sites. Very few mortgage companies make their panel listings visible on the web. If you are looking for a Newhaven solicitor on the Yorkshire BS please make the most of our facility.

I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with Barclays. I assume I don't need a Newhaven lawyer on the Barclays panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?

If you have finished paying off your Barclays mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Barclays mortgage from the register. Barclays, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where Barclays has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. Barclays has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Barclays mortgage has been paid off.

I was told two weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Barclays. Is it usual for Barclays to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Newhaven is approved on their conveyancing panel? Barclays have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their Professional Indemnity Insurance Schedule.

Mortgage companies tend not to not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Barclays to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Barclays conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

I am buying my first flat in Newhaven benefiting from help to buy. The sellers refused to reduce the price so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The house builders rep suggested that I not to tell my lawyer about this extras as it will put at risk my loan with the lender. Is this normal?.

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.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Newhaven is where the house is located. Is there any guidance you can impart?

Flying freeholds in Newhaven are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Newhaven you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Newhaven may decide 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.

Given that I am about to spend £400,000 on a terraced house in Newhaven I would like to talk to a solicitor concerning thehouse move prior to instructing the firm. Can this be arranged?

This is something that we recommend - it is our preference to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you liaising with the lawyer who will be doing your property ownership legalities in Newhaven.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - each client is an important person, not a case number. The law firms that we put you in touch with believe that the fees you are provided with for your conveyancing in Newhaven should be the figure that you are charged.
