We are purchasing a apartment in Beaminster. It might be a silly question but how we can trust a lawyer? At some point we will need to put money into their account. What is the protection we have from them run away with our monies?

We expect to receive a DIP from Lloyds this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Lloyds recommend any Beaminster solicitors on the Lloyds conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?
You will need to appoint Beaminster solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Lloyds conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Lloyds through the process.
I have finally had an offer on a maisonette in Beaminster agreed to, but there is a chain. The owners have offered on a flat, however it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other flats in the pipeline. I have selected a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Beaminster. What should be my next step? At what stage do I apply for the mortgage with Lloyds?
It is understandable to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs prematurely (home loan application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then valuation, Beaminster conveyancing search costs, etc). First, you must check that your lawyer is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel. As to the subsequent steps this very much depends on the uniqueness of your case, desire for this property and on the state of the market. During a rising market the majority of purchasers will apply for the mortgage with Lloyds and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they ask their conveyancer to press on with the conveyancing in Beaminster.
I'm purchasing a new build house in Beaminster with a loan from Skipton Building Society. The sellers refused to budge the price so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The sale representative suggested that I not inform my conveyancer about this extras as it would jeopardize my mortgage with the bank. Is this normal?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer 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.

The majority of Beaminster leasehold properties will incur a service charge for maintenance of the block invoiced by the landlord. Should you acquire the apartment you will have to meet this amount, usually quarterly accross the year. This could vary from several hundred pounds to thousands of pounds for blocks with lifts and large common grounds. In all likelihood there will be a rentcharge for you to pay annual, this is usually not a significant amount, say around £25-£75 but you need to check it because on occasion it could be surprisingly expensive. How many years are left on the lease? Make sure you find out if there is anything that is prohibited in the lease.
