Our god-son is purchasing a house that has just been built in Clarborough with a mortgage from RBS. His conveyancer has advised him of a delay in completing the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. What is this document - I have never come across this before?
The document is intended to provide information to the main parties engaged in the purchase. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the RBS conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the valuer when requested. The developer will be required to start the process by downloading the form and completing it. The form will therefore need to be available for the valuer at the time of his or her site visit. The form should be sent to the RBS conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.
Why do I have to pay up front when it comes to conveyancing in Clarborough?
Where you are retaining lawyers for conveyancing in Clarborough your lawyer will ask you to provide them with funds to cover the the cost of the conveyancing searches. This will be the total of the cost of the conveyancing searches. If any deposit is payable against the sale price then this should be required immediately ahead of exchange of contracts. The closing balance that is due should be sent to your lawyer shortly before completion.

Am I better off to instruct a Clarborough conveyancing practitioner in close proximity to the house I am buying? We have a good friend who can execute the conveyancing however her office is 200miles drive away.
The primary upside of using a local Clarborough conveyancing practice is that you can visit the firm to execute paperwork, hand in your identification documents and pester them if necessary. Having local Clarborough know how is a plus. However it's more important to get someone that will do a good and efficient job. If other friends have instructed your friend and they were content that should trump using an unknown Clarborough conveyancing lawyer solely due to them being based in the area.
