My husband and I are acquiring a brand new apartment in Red Lodge and my conveyancer is advising me that she is duty bound to the mortgage company to reveal incentives from the builder. I am under pressure to exchange and my preference is not to delay deal. is my lawyer playing by the book?
You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your property lawyer. A precondition to being on a lender panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.
Will my conveyancer be raising enquiries regarding flooding as part of the conveyancing in Red Lodge.
Flooding is a growing risk for solicitors conducting conveyancing in Red Lodge. There are those who purchase a house in Red Lodge, fully aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, leaving to one side the physical damage, where a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, satisfactory building insurance, or dispose of the premises. There are steps that can be taken as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the buyer.
Solicitors are not qualified to give advice on flood risk, however there are a numerous searches that can be carried out by the purchaser or by their conveyancers which should figure out the risks in Red Lodge.

If flooding has previously occurred which is not notified by the seller, then a buyer could issue a compensation claim resulting from an misleading reply. A purchaser’s conveyancers may also commission an environmental search. This will higlight whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, further inquiries should be carried out.
How does conveyancing in Red Lodge differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Red Lodge contact us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is constructed. This is because new home sellers in Red Lodge usually buy the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Red Lodge or who has acted in the same development.
