Can you help? My Penyffordd solicitor is advising me that he is legally obliged toapply for Penyffordd conveyancing searches asthe firm are on the Nat Westsolicitor panel. Is this really necessary?
Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. Given that you are taking out a loan with a bank your lawyer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your lawyer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your bank’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the CML Handbook requirements . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Penyffordd conveyancing searches.
I have a mortgage with Leeds Building Society for my property in Penyffordd. Conveyancing was finalised 12 months ago. Should I wish 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 Leeds Building Society?
Leeds Building Society must be informed of your intention before renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Leeds Building Society’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Leeds Building Society 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 Leeds Building Society directly. You need not do this via a Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel solicitor.
I had an offer accepted on a property in Penyffordd on 3/9/2021, valuation was booked 2 days later, all came back fine. Conveyancer appointed, so all that was missing was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Skipton and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Skipton conveyancing panel. Can the lender hold off the offer?
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 Skipton to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Skipton conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
Our sealed bid on a property in Penyffordd has been agreed to, the vendors do nevertheless have a connected purchase. The vendors have put an offer on somewhere, but it’s not been accepted yet, and have viewings of other properties in the pipeline. I have chosen a local conveyancing solicitor in Penyffordd. What do I do now? When do I get the mortgage application with Clydesdale going?
It is usual to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs too early (home loan application is approx one thousand pounds, then valuation, Penyffordd conveyancing search costs, etc). The first thing to do is ensure that your solicitor is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. Regarding the subsequent phase this very much dictated by the circumstances of your transaction, attraction to this property and on the state of the market. During a hot market the majority of buyers would apply for the mortgage with Clydesdale and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they pay their solicitor to press on with searches.
I'm buying a new build house in Penyffordd with a mortgage from Platform Home Loans Ltd. The builders would not reduce the price so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The sale representative suggested that I not disclose to my solicitor about the side-deal as it would impact my loan with the lender. Should I keep quiet?.
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.
