Can you help? My Yarm On Tees solicitor is advising me that she is duty bound toapply for Yarm On Tees conveyancing searches asthe firm are on the HSBCconveyancing panel. Is this really necessary?
Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. Given that you are taking out a loan with a lender your lawyer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your conveyancer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your bank’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to follow the CML Handbook provisions . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Yarm On Tees conveyancing searches.
Is there a list of Clydesdale panel solicitors in Yarm On Tees on the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook Website?
No. There is no such facility on the CML or Building Society Association sites. A small selection of mortgage companies make their panel listings visible over the internet. Where you are looking for a Yarm On Tees conveyancing practitioner on the Clydesdale please use our tool.
I have paid off my mortgage with TSB. I assume I don't need a Yarm On Tees lawyer on the TSB panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?
If you have finished paying off your TSB mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the TSB mortgage from the register. TSB, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:
- but are not moving to another property
- where TSB has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- TSB has instructed the Land Registry to do so
Completion of my purchase has taken place for my property in Yarm On Tees. Conveyancing was a necessary evil but I would like to complain about the lender. Who do I contact should I wish to lodge a complaint?
Almost all lenders have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Team at head office. Ordinarily complaints to a lender are resolved effectively and efficiently. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service who will take matters further.
I am buying my first flat in Yarm On Tees benefiting from help to buy. The builders would not reduce the amount so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The estate agent advised me not disclose to my lawyer about the side-deal as it would adversely affect my mortgage with the lender. Should I keep quiet?.
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.
We're first time buyers - agreed a price, but the estate agent informed us that the owners will only issue a contract if we use the agent's recommended lawyers as they are insisting on an ‘expedited deal’. My instinct tells me that we should use a local solicitor who is familiar with conveyancing in Yarm On Tees
We suspect that the owner is not behind this request. Should the owner desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a motivated buyer is counter productive. Bypass the agents and go straight to the sellers and make sure they comprehend that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances arranged © you are unencumbered (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you intend to use your preferred Yarm On Tees conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will earn their negotiator at the agency a kickback or achieve conveyancing targets pre-set by corporate headquarters.
