I have given 2 months notice to my current landlord and must be out of my let out flat in Poole by 18/5/2023. Conveyancing for my house purchase has just started. Can I complete in a couple of weeks as I wish to avoid having to find short term accommodation?
Generally one should not give notice on a rental unless you have exchanged. Assuming that you have not already done so, speak to your solicitor and ask them to they cajole the sellers lawyers, try to an agreed time frame that all parties will look to achieve
We are planning on selling our home in Poole and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was built land that was not decontaminated. Any high street Poole conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the purchasers instructed a factory type conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Poole. We have lived in Poole for six years we know of no issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to get clarification need.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing firm already. Are they able to advise? You need to enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same ailment)
I have a 4 bedroom Georgian house in Poole. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Nottingham Building Society. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are a couple of entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold under the exact same address. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?
You should read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Poole and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also check the situation with your conveyancing solicitor who completed the work.
I am buying my first flat in Poole benefiting from help to buy. The builders refused to budge the price so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The estate agent advised me not disclose to my lawyer about the side-deal as it could jeopardize my loan with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder 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.
