Is the fact that my conveyancer in Thorpe Hesley is not identified on my bank's conveyancing panel that there is a problem with the quality of his work?
That would most likely be a wrong assumption to make. There are plenty of plausible explanations. Just recently a report by the solicitors regulator revealed that over three quarters of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The most common reasons for removal are: (1) lack of transactions (2) the lawyer is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. Should you be concerned you should simply call the Thorpe Hesley conveyancing practice and ask them why they are no longer on the approved list for your lender.
My god-son is in the process of securing a new build apartment in Thorpe Hesley with a home loan from TSB. His lawyer has advised him of a delay in completing the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. This document is news to me - what is it and who needs sight of it?
The form is intended to provide information to the main parties involved in the transaction. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the TSB conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the valuer when requested. The developer will be required to start the process by downloading the form and completing it. The form will therefore need to be available for the valuer at the time of his or her site visit. The form should be sent to the TSB conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.
I'm purchasing my first flat in Thorpe Hesley with a mortgage from Coventry Building Society. The developers refused to budge the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The sale representative suggested that I not disclose to my lawyer about the deal as it will jeopardize my loan with the lender. 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%.
