We had instructed solicitors based in Treorchy on the Yorkshire BS solicitor approved list. They are now charging me an additional fee for the legal aspects of the Yorkshire BS mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by Yorkshire BS?
As unfair as it may appear, as long as it’s in their Terms of Engagement or Quote then yes your property lawyer may charge a fee for this. This fee is not set by Yorkshire BS but by your Treorchy solicitor. Numerous firms on the Yorkshire BS panel will quote an ‘acting for lender’ fee and others do not.
My offer on a detached house in Treorchy has been agreed to, the sellers do nevertheless have a connected purchase. The vendors have offered on on an apartment, however it’s not been accepted yet, and have viewings of other flats booked. I have instructed a local conveyancing solicitor in Treorchy. What should be my next step? At what point do I apply for the mortgage with HSBC?
It is understandable to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (mortgage application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then valuation, Treorchy conveyancing search costs, etc). First, you should check that your solicitor is on the HSBC conveyancing panel. As to the next phase this very much depends on the uniqueness of your case, attraction to this property and on the state of the market. In a buoyant market some home buyers will apply for a home loan with HSBC and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their property lawyer to proceed with searches.
Will my solicitor be asking questions regarding flooding as part of the conveyancing in Treorchy.
Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers dealing with homes in Treorchy. Some people will acquire a property in Treorchy, fully expectant that at some time, it may be flooded. However, aside from the physical damage, if a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, adequate insurance cover, or dispose of the premises. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the purchaser.
Lawyers are not best placed to give advice on flood risk, but there are a various checks that can be undertaken by the buyer or on a buyer’s behalf which can figure out the risks in Treorchy. The conventional set of property information forms sent to a purchaser’s conveyancer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) includes a usual question of the seller to find out if the property has suffered from flooding. In the event that the property has been flooded in past which is not notified by the vendor, then a buyer may issue a legal claim for losses as a result of such an misleading answer. A buyer’s lawyers will also order an enviro search. This will reveal if there is any known flood risk. If so, further investigations will need to be initiated.
