We are acquiring our first house. The property lawyer has messagedto enquire if we would like to take out additional conveyancing searches. Unfortunately we in the dark as to what's needed for conveyancing in Putney Vale
The type of Putney Vale conveyancing searches depends entirely on the property, the location, the likelihood of any of these risks, your familiarity of the area and risks, your general approach to risk. What is important is that you adequately comprehend what information the searches could give you. Then you can decide if you personally think you need that search. If uncertain, ask your lawyer to explain.
I got the keys to my house on 11 November and my personal details are still not registered. Should I be concerned? My conveyancing solicitor in Putney Vale expressed confidence that it will be recorded in less than a month. Are titles in Putney Vale particularly slow to register?
There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Putney Vale registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can adjust depending on the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry must send notices to any other persons or bodies. Currently approximately three quarters of submission are fully addressed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to longer hold-ups. Historically registration is effected after the new owner is living at the premises so 'speed' is not always an essential issue but if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor must speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.
I am purchasing my first flat in Putney Vale with the aid of help to buy. The builders refused to budge the amount so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The property agent suggested that I not reveal to my conveyancer about the deal as it will adversely affect my loan with the bank. Should I keep quiet?.
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 opted to have a survey carried out on a house in Putney Vale in advance of retaining conveyancers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold aspect to the property. The surveyor advised that some mortgage companies tend refuse to issue a loan on such a property.
