I'm purchasing a new build house in Shanklin with the aid of help to buy. The sellers refused to budge the price so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The house builders rep told me not to tell my lawyer about this extras as it could impact my mortgage with the bank. Is this normal?.
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.
Should I appoint a Shanklin conveyancing solicitor who is local to the property I am buying? An old friend can carry out the legal work however his firm is located 400kilometers drive away.
The benefit of a local Shanklin conveyancing firm is that you can drop in to sign documents, hand in your identification documents and apply pressure on them if necessary. Having local Shanklin know how is a benefit. However nothing is more important than finding someone that will do a good and efficient job. If if people you trust instructed your friend and they were impressed that should outweigh using an unfamiliar Shanklin conveyancing lawyer just because they are local.
I’m about to sell my ground floor flat in Shanklin. Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon, however I have recently had a half-yearly maintenance charge invoice – what should I do?
The sensible thing to do is pay the maintenance contribution as normal given that all rents and service invoices will be apportioned as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.
