Recently asked questions about conveyancing in North Cornelly

My son-in-law is in the process of securing a house that has just been built in North Cornelly with a mortgage from Skipton. His lawyer has said that there is a delay in receiving the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. What is this document - I have never come across this before?

The form 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 Skipton conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the valuer when asked. 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 Skipton conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.

Can I be sure that the North Cornelly conveyancing solicitor on the Coventry BS panel is any good?

I am expecting a DIP from UBS this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do UBS recommend any North Cornelly solicitors on the UBS conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?

You will need to appoint North Cornelly solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the UBS conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and UBS through the process.

It is unclear whether my mortgage offer requires a lease extension. I have telephoned my North Cornelly building society branch on numerous occasions and was informed it wasn't a problem and they would lend. My North Cornelly conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- called to say that they refuse to lend in accordance with their published requirements. Who do I believe?

The conveyancer has to follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook section two conditions for your lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

If the property has been flooded in past which is not revealed by the vendor, then a buyer could bring a legal claim for losses resulting from an misleading reply.

It has been 3 months since my purchase conveyancing in North Cornelly completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £180,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the premises from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

My partner and I have recently had a bid accepted on our first house in North Cornelly, and are about to get solicitors appointed. I have utilised the different comparison based websites and the quotes are from all across the country. Is it advisable to have a North Cornelly conveyancer local to our prospective new home? We are content to do all the communicating over the internet, but I am thinking at some point we will need to visit the property lawyer's office to sign documents?

Generally there is no need to physically visit the office of your property lawyer, they can post any relevant papers to you, which you can sign and return. Many home movers prefer to use a locally based solicitor, but it's by no means essential for conveyancing in North Cornelly.
