My bid for a property was accepted at auction in Cheadle Hulme. Conveyancing is necessary. What is next?

Given that you are now for all intents and purposes signed on the dotted line you now have to hire the services of a conveyancing solicitor soon as you are faced with a tight a fixed date to complete the purchase. All auction property should have an associated auction set of papers. This should include evidence of title and search results. In the case of leasehold property the legal pack should include a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and associated conveyancing documentation relating to leasehold premises. You need to give this to your appointed conveyancing solicitor ASAP. You also need to ensure that your finances are organised to complete on the date specified in the contract.

Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Leeds Building Society. Cheadle Hulme conveyancing practitioners are instructed. How long does it take for Leeds Building Society to forward the offer to the solicitor?

There is no definitive answer here. Have Leeds Building Society conducted the valuation? Have you advised Leeds Building Society as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.

I am purchasing a new build house in Cheadle Hulme with a loan from Clydesdale. The builders refused to move on the amount so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The house builders rep told me not inform my lawyer about the side-deal as it could impact my loan with Clydesdale. Should I keep quiet?.

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.

My a decade ago. He has since got wed, widowed and is now married again. He will be marketing the apartment this May. I believe he will just be requested to supply copies of his marriage certificates to the property lawyer but he is concerned it could delay the home move. Should he appoint a conveyancer to update the title information for the property?

It is not absolutely necessary to update the title for the property on the basis that you have the evidence required to show how the name change resulted.

The buyer’s solicitor will review the land registry details and requisition evidence to establish the name change e.g. marriage documentation.
