I do hope you can help me. My Cinderford solicitor is advising me that she is duty bound toapply for Cinderford conveyancing searches becausethe firm are on the HSBCapproved lawyer panel. These Cinderford checks cost a lot of money can this be avoided?
You have limited options available to you. As you are obtaining a home loan with a mortgage company your conveyancer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your lawyer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your bank’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook conditions . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Cinderford conveyancing searches.

My offer was accepted on an apartment in Cinderford on 10/10/2018, valuation was booked 3 days after, received a clean bill of health. Conveyancer instructed, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Leeds Building Society and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel. Are Leeds Building Society entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?
A lender would not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Leeds Building Society to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
I'm purchasing a new build house in Cinderford with a mortgage from Barnsley Building Society. The builders would not budge the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The property agent told me not to tell my conveyancer about this deal as it would jeopardize my mortgage with the bank. 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.

The property lawyers undertaking our conveyancing in Cinderford has sent papers to review that show the land is unregistered with epitome documents. Is it not the case that all houses in Cinderford should be registered?
Although most properties in Cinderford are now registered with HMLR there are still a few that remain unregistered. Any property in Cinderford that has been purchased since the late 1980’s will have been registered at the HM Land Registry under the compulsory ‘first registration’ scheme. However, if a Cinderford property has not changed hands in that time then it’s likely the old fashioned title deeds will be the only evidence of ownership.Plenty of Cinderford conveyancing solicitors should be capable of dealing with this type of conveyancing but where uncertainty exists the usual proposition presently seems to be for the seller to register it first and subsequently deal with the transfer to the buyer - this can though naturally cause a prolonged transaction.
