Why do I have to pay up front when it comes to conveyancing in Twyford?
Where you are retaining lawyers for conveyancing in Twyford your lawyer will request that you to provide them with monies to cover the the cost of the conveyancing searches. This will be the total of the cost of the conveyancing searches. If any down payment is as part of the purchase price then this should be asked for shortly in advance of exchange of contracts. The closing balance that is needed should be transferred shortly before completion.
It is unclear whether my lender obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have telephoned my Twyford building society branch on numerous occasions and was informed it wasn't an issue and they would lend. My Twyford conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they refuse to lend in accordance with their published requirements. I simply don't know who is right.
Provided that the conveyancing practitioner is on the lender panel, she or he must follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook requirements for the 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 lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.
I am selling my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in October 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's mortgage company, Clydesdale are being a right pain. The Twyford solicitor who is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Clydesdale are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Clydesdale have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Clydesdale have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Clydesdale may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
After what seems like an age I have had an offer on a flat in Twyford accepted, but there is a chain. The owners have offered on somewhere, however it’s not yet agreed to, and have viewings of other properties in the pipeline. I have chosen a high street conveyancing solicitor in Twyford. What do I do now? When do I get the mortgage application with Kent Reliance started?
It is usual to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses too early (home loan application is approx one thousand pounds, then valuation, Twyford conveyancing search fees, etc). The first thing to do is ensure that your solicitor is on the Kent Reliance approved list. Regarding the next phase this very much dictated by the circumstances of your transaction, desire for this property and on the state of the market. During a hot market many buyers would apply for the mortgage with Kent Reliance and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they pay their conveyancer to proceed with searches.
I am buying my first flat in Twyford benefiting from help to buy. The builders would not move on the amount so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The property agent advised me not reveal to my solicitor about this extras as it may adversely affect my mortgage with Clydesdale. Is this normal?.
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.
