We are acquiring a new build duplex in Dagenham and my lawyer is advising me that she has to the lender to disclose incentives from the developer. I am nearing the developer’s deadline to exchange contracts and I would rather not delay matters. 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 requirements. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.

How does conveyancing in Dagenham differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Dagenham approach us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is finished. This is because developers in Dagenham tend to acquire the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Dagenham or who has acted in the same development.
