As someone clueless as to conveyancing in Brixham what’s your top tip you can give me for the ownership transfer in Brixham
You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Brixham and elsewhere in Devon is an adversarial experience. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there is an abundance of room for confrontation between you and other parties involved in the home moving process. For example, the seller, estate agent and sometimes the lender. Appointing a law firm for your conveyancing in Brixham should not be taken lightly as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY party in the legal process whose responsibility is to act in your legal interests and to protect you.
On occasion a potential adversary will attempt to convince you that it is in your interests to do things their way. For example, the property agent may claim to be assisting by claiming that your conveyancer is dragging his heels. Or your financial adviser may advise you to do take action that is against your solicitors advice. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties in the home moving process.

I'm purchasing my first flat in Brixham with the aid of help to buy. The sellers would not move on the price so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The house builders rep advised me not reveal to my solicitor about this side-deal as it may affect my mortgage with Aldermore. 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.
