The housing market in Tyne And Wear is heating up. What can I do to expedite matters?
Where the seller is applying a tight deadline to sign contracts we would recommend that your conveyancer is familiar with the area as they will make use of local contacts and know-how. It is even conceivable that they could have conducted previoushouses in the same neighbourhood. Therefore consider using a Tyne And Wear conveyancing firm. Second, check that the lawyer is on the on the approved list for your mortgage company. It is believed that 18% of Tyne And Wear conveyancing deals are frustrated or jeopardised after finding out that a buyer’s conveyancer was not on their banks panel. This can often result in the legal transfer of property being delayed by as much as three weeks. It is said that this issue impacts approximately one hundred thousand home sales every year. Almost all Tyne And Wear conveyancing firms can not act for certain lenders so do check at the outset.
The Tyne And Wear conveyancing lawyers that I recently instructed on my purchase in Tyne And Wear have suddenly shut down. I chose them because I needed a firm on the Nottingham conveyancing panel and my previous Tyne And Wear lawyer was not. I gave my credit card details for them to take £195 for searches. What are my options?
If you have an estate agent involved then inform them immediately so that they advise the vendors that there may be a slight delay due to reasons beyond your control. Hopefully they will be sympathetic and urge their lawyer to send a new set of papers to your new solicitors. You should appoint new lawyers that are on the Nottingham conveyancing panel and notify the lender. If you have paid over any money, it will hopefully be held by the SRA as money in an intervened firm's bank accounts is transferred to the SRA. Then, the SRA or the intervention agent looks at the intervened firm's accounts to work out who the money belongs to. To claim your money you will need to contact the SRA. If the SRA cannot return money you are owed from the firm's bank accounts, or if they can only return part of the money, you can apply to the Compensation Fund for a grant. Your new lawyers may be able to assist.

I'm buying a new build house in Tyne And Wear with a loan from Barclays Direct. The builders would not move on the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The estate agent told me not to tell my lawyer about this side-deal as it could affect my mortgage with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
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%.
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.
