Our nephew is about to exchange on a house that has just been built in Yoxall with a home loan from Aldermore. His solicitor has said that there is a delay in receiving the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. Who needs to receive the form?
The document is intended to provide information to the main parties involved in the transaction. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the Aldermore conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the surveyor when requested. The developer will be required to start the process by downloading the form and completing it. The form will therefore need to be available for the valuer at the time of his or her site visit. The form should be sent to the Aldermore conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.
How does conveyancing in Yoxall differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Yoxall come to us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is finished. This is because new home sellers in Yoxall typically acquire the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Yoxall or who has acted in the same development.
We're novice buyers - had an offer accepted, but the agent advised that the seller will only move forward if we instruct the agent's preferred solicitors as they want a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a family solicitor who is familiar with conveyancing in Yoxall
We suspect that the owner is not behind this requirement. Should the seller require ‘a quick sale', alienating a genuine buyer is not the way to achieve this. Speak to the vendors direct and explain that (a)you are motivated purchasers (b)you are ready to go, with finances arranged © you are unencumbered (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you are going to use your preferred Yoxall conveyancing firm - as opposed tothe ones that will provide the estate agent a kickback or hit his conveyancing targets pre-set by head office.
