I have justbecome aware that Wolstenholmes have been shut down. They conducted my conveyancing in Allestree for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 18 months ago. How can I establish that the property is registered correctly in the name of the previous owner?
The easiest way to see if the premises is in your name, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Allestree conveyancing specialists.
I am purchasing my first flat in Allestree benefiting from help to buy. The developers refused to move on the amount so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The house builders rep told me not disclose to my solicitor about the side-deal as it may adversely affect my mortgage with the lender. Is this normal?.
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.
Is it best to go with a Allestree conveyancing solicitor in close proximity to the house I am hoping to buy? I have an old university friend who can deal with the conveyancing however her office is 200miles away.
The primary upside of using a local Allestree conveyancing firm is that you can pop in to sign documents, hand in your ID and pester them where appropriate. Having local Allestree know how is a plus.

My wife and I have instructed a Allestree conveyancing solicitor for our home move (FTB’s) and have picked up in the Ts and Cs that they are not governed by the FCA. Am I right to be worried or is that the norm with conveyancer?
We can't see why they should be. Most conveyancing practitioner don't lend money. You should check that they are governed by the SRA, who set specific conditions in place on funds held in their bank.
