I had a mortgage agreed in principle with Bank of Ireland. Blakenhall conveyancing practitioners are appointed. How long does it take for Bank of Ireland to issue the offer to the conveyancer?

Some lenders take longer than others. Have Bank of Ireland conducted the valuation? Have you informed Bank of Ireland as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.

I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Blakenhall. I have a mortgage offer with Co-operative. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should have one. Any advice?

It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Co-operative, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Co-operative conveyancing panel.

I require quick conveyancing in Blakenhall as I am faced with an ultimatum to exchange contracts inside one month. Fortunately I do not require a mortgage. Is it possible to escape the need for conveyancing searches to save fees and time?

4 months have elapsed since my purchase conveyancing in Blakenhall took place. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £180,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

I'm purchasing a new build house in Blakenhall with a mortgage from Accord Mortgages Ltd. The developers refused to budge the price so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The sale representative advised me not to tell my conveyancer about this side-deal as it would affect my mortgage with Accord Mortgages Ltd. Should I keep quiet?.

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.

Given that I am about to part with 450k on 3 bedroom house in Blakenhall I wish to have a conversation with the conveyancer regarding thehouse move ahead of appointing the firm. Can this be arranged?

Absolutely - it is our preference to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you first talking to the solicitor due to be conducting your conveyancing in Blakenhall.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - every client is unique person, not a matter number. The solicitors that we put you in touch with believe that the figure you are provided with for your conveyancing in Blakenhall should be the amount on the final invoice that you are charged.
