We are buying a flat and require a conveyancing solicitor in Rawdon and Yeadon who is on the Coventry BS approved panel. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a firm?
Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Coventry BS . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Rawdon and Yeadon.
I am assisting my mother sell her house in Rawdon and Yeadon. Will the conveyancing solicitor order the EPC or it is for the owner to see to?
After the demise of HIPs, energy assessments was maintained a mandatory component of moving house. An energy performance certificate should be to hand prior to the property being marketed. It is not a task that lawyers ordinarily arrange. Where you are instructing a Rawdon and Yeadon conveyancing practitioner they might help arrange energy performance certificates given their relationships with long established Rawdon and Yeadon assessors
I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Rawdon and Yeadon. I have a mortgage agreed with HSBC. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with HSBC, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the HSBC conveyancing panel.
I've digested plenty of house buying guides, I note that it is considered advisable to get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Rawdon and Yeadon solicitor - who is on the Skipton conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. is that correct?
Skipton will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Skipton will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Rawdon and Yeadon surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.
I'm purchasing my first flat in Rawdon and Yeadon with a mortgage from Coventry Building Society. The builders refused to budge the price so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The estate agent suggested that I not disclose to my lawyer about this deal as it may affect my mortgage with Coventry Building Society. Should I keep quiet?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer 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.

My husband and I are four weeks into a leasehold purchase having been recommend to solicitors by the local agent to perform conveyancing in Rawdon and Yeadon. I am not happy. Can you you assist me in finding new lawyers?
They would have to be very bad to suggest changing them. Has your mortgage been issued? If so you must advise them of the replacement lawyer and have the offer are re-sent. Your solicitor ideally needs to be on the lenders approved list to avoid escalating costs and complications. That should be your starting point.
