My mortgage broker requires my Turvey lawyer’ panel member for the Nat West conveyancing panel. Can you suggest how I obtain this. I have contacted my local Turvey office but they cant find it on their system.

We are getting a further advance on our home loan from UBS as we wish to conduct improvements to our property in Turvey. Do we need to appoint a bricks and mortar Turvey solicitor on the UBS conveyancing panel to handle the legals?

I had an offer accepted on a house in Turvey on 22/3/2022, valuation was booked five days after, all came back fine. Property lawyer instructed, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to HSBC and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the HSBC conveyancing panel. Can the lender hold off the offer?

A lender would not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for HSBC to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the HSBC conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

My sealed bid on a house in Turvey has been agreed to, but there is a chain. The owners have put an offer on somewhere, however it’s not been accepted yet, and have viewings of other flats booked. I have chosen a high street conveyancing solicitor in Turvey. What should be my next step? When should I get the mortgage application with TSB started?

It is normal to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses prematurely (mortgage application is approx one thousand pounds, then valuation, Turvey conveyancing search charges, etc). First, you must check that your solicitor is on the TSB approved list. As to the subsequent steps this very much dictated by the specifics of your case, attraction to the property and on the state of the market. In a rising market many purchasers will apply for the mortgage with TSB and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they request their property lawyer to proceed with the conveyancing in Turvey.

Will my solicitor be raising enquiries concerning flooding during the conveyancing in Turvey.

Flooding is a growing risk for conveyancers dealing with homes in Turvey. There are those who purchase a property in Turvey, fully aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, aside from the physical damage, where a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, suitable building insurance, or dispose of the property. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the purchaser.

Solicitors are not best placed to impart advice on flood risk, but there are a numerous checks that may be initiated by the purchaser or by their conveyancers which will figure out the risks in Turvey. The standard information supplied to a buyer’s solicitor (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) contains a standard inquiry of the seller to determine whether the premises has historically flooded. In the event that flooding has previously occurred which is not revealed by the seller, then a buyer may bring a compensation claim stemming from an incorrect answer. The purchaser’s lawyers will also order an enviro search. This will indicate whether there is any known flood risk. If so, additional investigations should be made.

I am buying a new build house in Turvey benefiting from help to buy. The sellers refused to move on the amount so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The estate agent advised me not disclose to my conveyancer about the side-deal as it will impact my loan with Lloyds TSB Bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder 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.

At what point do I pay stamp duty due for my Turvey house purchase?

Most property lawyers tend to complete a Land Transaction Return Form on your behalf during your Turvey conveyancing transaction for you to sign. After completion your conveyancer will submit the Land Transaction application to the Inland Revenue and - as long as they have the money - settle any Stamp Duty payable on your behalf.
