Can I be sure that the Preston Park conveyancing solicitor on the Principality panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Preston Park seeking recommendations is a good start. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one advertising the lowest fees. We would always advise that you speak with the lawyer conducting your conveyancing.
I am expecting a OIP from Co-operative this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Co-operative recommend any Preston Park solicitors on the Co-operative conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint Preston Park solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Co-operative conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Co-operative through the process.
Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to my home are lost. The lawyers who did the conveyancing in Preston Park 10 years ago are no longer around. What are my options?
As long as you have a registered title the details of your proprietorship will be evidenced by HMLR with a Title Number. It is easy to carry out a search at the Land Registry, identify your property and order current copies of the Registered Entries for less than a fiver. Where the title is Leasehold then the Land Registry will usually retain a file duplicate of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be retrieved for a small fee.
I'm buying my first flat in Preston Park with a mortgage from Nottingham Building Society. The developers refused to reduce the price so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The house builders rep advised me not inform my lawyer about this side-deal as it could jeopardize my mortgage 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.
I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Preston Park. Before I get started I want to be sure as to the number of years remaining on the lease.
Assuming the lease is registered - and most are in Preston Park - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
