Our god-son is in the process of securing a new build apartment in Abertridwr with a home loan from RBS. His solicitor has advised him of a delay in receiving the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. What is this document - I have never come across this before?
The form 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 RBS conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the valuer 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 RBS conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.
At what point does exchange of contracts occur in residential conveyancing in Abertridwr and do I need to attend the conveyancers branch?
If you are local to our conveyancing solicitors in Abertridwr you are welcome to come in to sign documents. However, the lender approved solicitors we work with offer countrywide coverage for conveyancing and provide as equally diligent and professional a job for you when dealing with you by post or email. The executing of the sale agreement is not when everything is set in stone. Signing on the dotted line simply enables the solicitor to officially exchange at the appropriate time, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The exchange process is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a long "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Abertridwr)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.

Have completed on a a semi-detached house in Abertridwr , how long will it take for the Land Registry to record my title? My Abertridwr conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to check the post completion formalities are concluded.
As far as conveyancing in Abertridwr registration is no quicker or slower than anywhere else in England and Wales. Rather than based on location, timeframes can vary according to who lodges the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry communicate with any other persons or bodies. Currently roughly three quarters of submission are fully addressed within two weeks but some can be subject to extensive delays. Registration takes place once the purchaser is living at the property thus post completion formalities is not usually an essential issue but if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your lawyers must communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.
I pay a service charge for my property in Abertridwr. Due to losing my job and other issues I fell into arrears with payments. The freeholders agreed a payment plan but there remains three grand outstanding as of today.
I am under pressure to sell and I am concerned this could threaten to derail the sale if I have to settle the arrears first. Do I have to settle before - is this viable?
It would be wise to check with the conveyancing practitioner undertaking your Abertridwr conveyancing but one option might be to agree for the arrears to be attributed to the buyers. The purchase price payable would be reduced to reflect the amount of debt they assume. They would then deal with the arrears once they are the owners.
