I plan on purchasing a maisonette in Putney Heath. My Conveyancer has never been on on the bank approved list. Is it possible for me to appoint my Putney Heath conveyancing solicitor notwithstanding that they are excluded from the bank approved list?
One must have a lawyer to complete the formalities if you require a mortgage to buy your property. They will conduct all the necessary due diligence on the property, ensuring that you’re properly registered as the owner and ensure that all the required mortgage documentation is in order. One may select a Putney Heath property lawyer of your choice. Nevertheless, where the conveyancing practitioner appointed is not on the mortgage company conveyancing panel additional charges will be levied as separate legal representation will be need by the bank. Bank panel applications may be submitted, so provided your conveyancer has not in the past applied for membership they can do so.
We have rather pushy sellers who has recommended a exclusivity contract with a payment of 5k. Are such agreements sensible?
There are two main concerns with executing a lock out contract (occasionally referred to as a no-shop agreement) is that it takes away the focus from making progress with the conveyancing transaction itself, so in the absence of it needing little or no negotiation then it may transpire to be unhelpful. It is not strongly advocated amongst Putney Heath conveyancing lawyers for this reason. The other main concern is the extent of the remedies available - an aggrieved buyer should not expect to be granted an injunctive ruling by a court to stop the vendor selling to a third party, so the only remedy available under the contract will be the recovery of abortive charges and, in rare circumstances, the extra payment of damages.
We are planning to acquire a property and require a conveyancing solicitor in Putney Heath who is on the TSB solicitor panel. Can you recommend a local solicitor?

I am purchasing my first flat in Putney Heath with a loan from Norwich and Peterborough Building Society. The sellers refused to move on the price so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The estate agent advised me not reveal to my solicitor about the side-deal as it may affect my mortgage with the lender. 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 acquired a house in Putney Heath last 13/3/2018 and to date it is still not recorded with HMLR. It was part of a development site and my property lawyer told me that it may take over a year to register. I have contacted HM Land Registry directly and they have informed me the original application was cancelled due to questions not being addressed in time. Should I be concerned?
