Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Plympton

Is there a list of Skipton panel solicitors in Plympton on the Building Society Association’s Website?

Unfortunately not yet. There is no such tool on the Council of Mortgage Lenders or Building Society Association websites. A small selection of lending institutions make their panel listings visible on the web. If you are looking for a Plympton property lawyer on the Skipton please use our facility.

is it true that all Plympton solicitor firms on the HSBC conveyancing panel are regulated by the SRA?

As solicitors, in order to be on the HSBC conveyancing panel they would need to be regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. Some mortgage companies do allow licenced conveyancers on their panel and in such a situation the organisation would be overseen by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.

My partner and I are spending time viewing apartments in Plympton and I am about to put in an offer. Is it too early to have a solicitor in place? I intend to finance via a mortgage with Yorkshire BS.

It would be sensible to start your search sooner rather than later. After you have chosen your lawyer and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their contact information on to the estate agent. Given that you are seeking a mortgage with Yorkshire BS, make sure you remember to check that your lawyer is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel.

Various internet forums that I have come across warn that are the main cause of obstruction in Plympton house deals. Is this right?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) has noted the findings of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature within the top 10 causes of hindrances in the conveyancing process. Local searches are not likely to be the root cause of slowing down conveyancing in Plympton.

I am purchasing my first flat in Plympton benefiting from help to buy. The developers refused to move on the price so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The sale representative told me not reveal to my solicitor about this deal as it would affect my loan with the bank. 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.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and found one round the corner in Plympton I like with amenity areas and railway links in the vicinity, however it's only got 52 years on the lease. There is not much else in Plympton for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?

If you require a mortgage that many years will likely be problematic. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this.

Am I best advised to go with a Plympton conveyancing solicitor based in the vicinity that I am purchasing? I have an old university friend who can carry out the conveyancing however her office is 400miles away.

The primary upside of using a high street Plympton conveyancing firm is that you can visit the firm to execute documents, hand in your identification documents and pester them if necessary. They will also have local knowledge which is a plus. However nothing is more important than finding someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If other friends have instructed your friend and they were content that must trump using an unfamiliar Plympton conveyancing solicitor solely due to them being round the corner.
