My husband and I are buying a newly built duplex in Queen's Park and my conveyancer is informing me that she has to the mortgage company to reveal incentives from the seller. I am under pressure to sign contracts and I would rather not delay deal. is my lawyer playing by the book?
You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your solicitor. A precondition to being on a mortgage company panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook provisions. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.
When can the exchange of contracts occur in sale conveyancing in Queen's Park and do I need to be at the lawyers office?
If you are round the corner to our conveyancing solicitors in Queen's Park you are welcome to attend to sign the paperwork. However, the firms we work with provide a national conveyancing service and give just as detailed and professional a job for you when dealing with you digitally. The signing of the property agreement is not the point of no return. A signed contract is just a prerequisite for the conveyancer to address the formalities when the time is right, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The procedure is is usually a five minute process, although where an extended "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Queen's Park)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.
I am purchasing a new build house in Queen's Park with the aid of help to buy. The developers would not move on the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of extras instead. The sale representative advised me not disclose to my lawyer about the extras as it will adversely affect my loan with the bank. Is this normal?.
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.
