What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in North Cave? Why is this being asked of me?
It is indeed that case that the requirement set out by your solicitor has nothing to do with conveyancing in North Cave. Nowadays you can not proceed with any conveyancing transaction without first supplying evidence of your identity. Ordinarily this takes the form of a either your passport or driving licence plus a council tax bill. Please note that if you are providing your driving licence as evidence of identification it must be both the paper part and photo card part, one is not acceptable in the absence of the other.
Verification of the origin of monies is mandated in accordance with the Money Laundering Regulations. Don’t be offended when you are asked to produce this as your conveyancing solicitor must have this information on file. Your North Cave conveyancing lawyer will require evidence of proof of funds prior to accepting any money from you into their client account and they will also ask further queries concerning the origin of funds.
My solicitor has informed me that absentee landlord insurance is necessary on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in North Cave?
The right level of absentee landlord indemnity insurance should be dictated by who who your lender is. It would differ for example between Lloyds TSB Bank and Bank of Scotland. Conveyancing solicitors as opposed to borrowers take out such insurances.
I have paid off my mortgage with Clydesdale. I assume I don't need a North Cave solicitor on the Clydesdale panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.
If you have finished paying off your Clydesdale 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 Clydesdale mortgage from the register. Clydesdale, 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:
- but are not moving to another property
- where Clydesdale has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- Clydesdale has instructed the Land Registry to do so
I had an offer accepted on a property in North Cave on 4/5/2021, valuation was booked five days later, received a clean bill of health. Property lawyer retained, so all that was missing was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Clydesdale and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. Are Clydesdale entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?
A lender would not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Clydesdale to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
I am purchasing my first flat in North Cave with a mortgage from Nottingham Building Society. The developers refused to move on the price so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The house builders rep suggested that I not reveal to my solicitor about the extras as it will affect my loan with the lender. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
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.
