Finally, a mortgage offer from Nationwide for the refinancing of my 4 bedroom garden flat is expected within the next few days. Can you propose a low cost conveyancing law firm in Belper?

This site is not designed to help those in their quest for cut-price fees for conveyancing solicitors in Belper. Our aim is to provide excellent value conveyancing but we do not aim to work with the cheapest lawyers. Do not be fooled by organisations teasing you with ninety nine pound conveyancing in Belper. In your best case scenario, in going for low cost conveyancing, you will receive what you pay for and at worst you will end up with a hefty uplift in additional fees and still not receive the service required.

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am wet behind the ears as FTB of a garden flat in Belper. Do I receive the keys to the property on the completion date from my solicitor? If this is the case, I will appoint a local conveyancing solicitor in Belper?

There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Conveyancing lawyers for you will arrange to send the purchase money to the seller's solicitors, and once they have received this, you will be able to pick up the keys from the property Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen between 1 and 3pm.

The mortgage over my property is with Principality for my property in Belper. Conveyancing was finalised 12 months ago. If I am intending to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform Principality?

Principality must be informed of your intention before letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Principality’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will permit you to let out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Principality directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Principality conveyancing panel firm.

I am due to exchange contracts on my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in June 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, Kent Reliance are being problematic. The Belper solicitor who is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Kent Reliance are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Kent Reliance have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Kent Reliance have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Kent Reliance may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

I'm buying a new build house in Belper with a mortgage from The Mortgage Works. The developers refused to move on the amount so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The property agent suggested that I not inform my conveyancer about the side-deal as it will jeopardize my loan with The Mortgage Works. 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.
