Our son is about to exchange on a house that has just been built in Colsterworth with a mortgage from TSB. His solicitor 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 TSB 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 TSB conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.

we are a couple who are buying a 2 bedroom flat in Colsterworth with a residential mortgage from The Royal Bank of Scotland.We like our Colsterworth conveyancing practitioner but The Royal Bank of Scotland advised that she’s not listed on their approved list of firms. It seems we are left with no choice but to instruct a The Royal Bank of Scotland panel solicitor or retain our high street solicitor and pay for one of their panel ones to represent them. We feel as though this is unjust; Can we not simply insist that The Royal Bank of Scotland use our lawyer?
Unfortunately,no. The loan offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that solicitors needs to be on the The Royal Bank of Scotland approved list. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of solicitors on their panels: a borrower could find one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for The Royal Bank of Scotland

It is important to be aware whether redecorating or some other major work is pending that will be shared amongst the leaseholders and may well dramatically impact the level of the maintenance costs or necessitate a specific invoice.

I purchased a property in Colsterworth last 14/3/2018 and to date it is still not recorded with HMLR. It was part of a new estate and my lawyer told me that it may take 12 months to complete the registration formalities. I have spoken with HM Land Registry directly and they say that the original application was cancelled due to failure to reply to requisitions. Should I be concerned?
