My husband and I are purchasing a newly built duplex in Bickley and my conveyancer is advising me that she is duty bound to the mortgage company to reveal incentives from the developer. I am nearing the developer’s deadline to exchange and my preference is not to delay matters. Is my lawyer right?

You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your property lawyer. A precondition to being on a bank panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook requirements. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.

The Leasehold Valuation Tribunal determined that the premium to be paid by the tenant on the grant of a new lease, in accordance with section 56 and Schedule 13 of the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 was £30,541 This case related to 1 flat.

How does one as executor remove a deceased person's name from the title deeds for a house in Bickley?

If a Bickley property is co-owned and one of the owners dies, the name will not immediately be removed from the Land Registry title. It is not necessary to amend the title as in the event of a sale you would just be asked to supply proof as to the reason the joint owner is missing from the conveyance, such as the probate documents.

With a view to making things smoother in the future you may apply to have the deceased person removed from the title register by applying to HM Land Registry with proof of the death. There is no fee from the Registry for this service.
