Willappointing a Watchet conveyancing solicitor make the legal transfer of property easier?
Established third party connections are another important factor to consider when appointing conveyancing solicitors. Watchet law firms enjoy connections with mortgage brokers and agents, local authorities, valuers and other conveyancing firms meaning the whole process is going to be much smoother for you. Possessing a sound intelligence of the local area also helps too.
As someone unfamiliar with conveyancing in Watchet what’s the number one tip you can give me for the ownership transfer in Watchet
Not many law firms or advisers will tell you this but conveyancing in Watchet and elsewhere in England and Wales is often a confrontational process. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there is an abundance of room for friction between you and others involved in the ownership transfer. For instance, the vendor, property agent and sometimes your mortgage company. Selecting a lawyer for your conveyancing in Watchet should not be taken lightly as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY person in the legal process whose interest is to protect your best interests and to protect you.
Sometimes a potential adversary may try and sway you that you should follow their advice. For example, the property agent may claim to be assisting by suggesting your conveyancer is wrong. Or your financial adviser may tell you to do something that is contrary to your solicitors guidance. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties in the conveyancing process.
It has been 2 months following my purchase conveyancing in Watchet completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
I am buying my first flat in Watchet with the aid of help to buy. The sellers would not move on the price so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The house builders rep advised me not to tell my solicitor about the side-deal as it would jeopardize 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.
