Q.

Nationwide will be our mortgage lender, what will we need to consider?

A.

When buying with a mortgage, a mortgage provider will need legal work to be undertaken in relation to the mortgage. Recently, a number of lenders are now reducing the size of their 'solicitor panel', resulting in greater legal costs for property purchasers in cases where the lawyer cannot act for their lender, and another must also be instructed. We, though, can act on behalf of most CML-approved lenders.

The conventional conveyancing protocol will be to get the following Local Authority Search, Drainage Search, Environmental and Coal Mining Search (Con29M) as well as any unique particular e.g. a Land Charges Search (K15).

Q.

Can you recommend how to get out of paying out for stamp duty to the Revenue?

A.

We do not recommend conveyancing clients arrange any form of stamp duty reduction scheme, because these schemes are highly expensive and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later.
