We are soon to exchange on the purchase of a property in South Normanton but as a consequence of damage from the recent storms I have was able negotiate recompense from the vendor in the sum of six thousand pounds taking the form of a adjustment in the price. I had intended this to be dealt with as part of amending the contract yet Bank of Ireland will not permit this. Should they have been notified?
The lawyer that is on the Bank of Ireland approved list is duty bound to disclose to Bank of Ireland of any variations to the purchase price. If you prohibit your conveyancing practitioner to disclose the price change to Bank of Ireland then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Bank of Ireland and you would have to appoint a new lawyer for your conveyancing in South Normanton.
This question may be naive but I am unseasoned as FTB of a garden flat in South Normanton. Do I receive the keys to the premises on completion from my lawyer? If so, I will appoint a local conveyancing solicitor in South Normanton?
There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Conveyancing lawyers for you will arrange to send the purchase money to the owner’s conveyancers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you should be able to pick up the keys from the property Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen between 1 and 3pm.
I can not work out if my lender requires a lease extension. I have telephoned my South Normanton building society branch on a couple of occasions and was advised it wasn't an issue and they will lend. My South Normanton conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- called and was told they will not lend in accordance with their published requirements. Who do I believe?
The solicitor has to comply with the CML Handbook section two conditions for your bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.
My offer was accepted on a house in South Normanton on 10/1/2024, valuation was booked 2 days later, received a clean bill of health. Solicitor instructed, so all that was missing was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Santander and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Santander conveyancing panel. Can the lender hold off the offer?
A lender would not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Santander to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Santander conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
