Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Warfield

AssumingI were to acquire a simple residential propertyin Warfield mortgage fee and dispense with a survey and no local authority searches how much could I expect to to save on my conveyancing in Warfield?

Any savings you would achieve would be limited to the Warfield conveyancing searches. The conveyancer still got to do everything else - money laundering, correspond with the vendors conveyancing practitioner, SDLT return, register the property etc. You might save a bit for them not needing to register a mortgage but it will not be significant.

What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Warfield? Why is this being asked of me?

It is indeed that case that these requests have nothing to do with conveyancing in Warfield. However these days you will not be able to complete any conveyancing transaction in the absence submitting evidence of your identity. This usually takes the form of a either your passport or driving licence as well as a utility bill. Please note that if you are providing your driving licence as evidence of ID it needs to be both the paper part and photo card part, one is not acceptable without the other.

Proof of the source of monies is necessary in accordance with the Money Laundering Regulations. Don’t be offended when when this is requested of you as your conveyancing solicitor must have this information on record. Your Warfield conveyancing lawyer will need to see evidence of proof of funds prior to accepting any monies from you into their client account and they will also ask further queries concerning the source of funds.

Me and my partner are buying a flat in Warfield. It might be a silly question but how we can trust a conveyancer? At some point we will need to deposit money into their account. What protection do we have from them run away with our money?

Be assured that all money in a Solicitors client account is 100% safe, and even if your Solicitor ran off with it, the Law Society would reimburse you fully.

Are all Warfield Conveyancing Quality Solicitors on the Skipton conveyancing list of approved solicitors?

A selection of banks and building societies now use CQS as the kick off point for Panel membership such as HSBC and Santander. CQS membership however gives no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. Nevertheless,the CML have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for firms wishing to remain on their panels.

Having digested plenty of mortgage guides, I note that they all recommend that you should get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Warfield solicitor - who is on the HSBC conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. Is that normal?

HSBC will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually HSBC will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your conveyancer will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Warfield postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with HSBC, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Warfield.

I am purchasing my first flat in Warfield with a mortgage from Yorkshire Building Society. The sellers refused to move on the amount so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The sale representative advised me not disclose to my solicitor about this deal as it may put at risk my loan 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.
