I am purchasing a brand new flat in Cranleigh and my solicitor is telling me that she is duty bound to the mortgage company to disclose incentives from the developer. The Estate Agents are hassling me to exchange contracts and I would rather not delay deal. Is my lawyer right?
You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your solicitor. A precondition to being on a mortgage company panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.

Absolutely - it is our preference to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you first talking to the lawyer due to be conducting your conveyancing in Cranleigh.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - each client is an important individual, not a matter number.

My mother and father are experiencing difficulties in finding their Cranleigh land registry title on the site. They have a vague memory 50 years ago when they bought the property there were complications concerning the address not being identified on some systems.
Almost all properties in Cranleigh should appear. Have you attempted a search to just the postcode. Ordinarily it will disclose all the houses and flats inside the postcode. Assuming the property is recorded it will be there with a title number. If they bought sixty years ago it's conceivable it may be unrecorded. The address could still be revealed but with the title number identified as 'na'. In this scenario you will need to find the original title documentation which could be with your parent’s lender.
