My nephew is in the process of securing a newly built flat in Datchet with a home loan from Co-operative. His solicitor has advised him of a delay in completing the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. Who needs to receive the form?
The document is intended to provide information to the main parties involved in the transaction. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the Co-operative 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 Co-operative conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.
When does exchange of contracts happen for purchase conveyancing in Datchet and am I required to be at the conveyancers branch?
Where you are in close proximity to our conveyancing solicitors in Datchet you are welcome to come in to sign documents. That being said, the law practices we work with offer a national conveyancing service and give as equally comprehensive and professional a job for you when communicating with you digitally. The executing of the property agreement is not the point of no return. A signed contract is just a prerequisite for the solicitor to exchange contracts when the time is right, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The exchange process is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a long "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Datchet)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

As is the case with many service providers, often suggestions from family and friends can be very helpful. Nevertheless there are lots of players in a conveyancing deal; estate agents, financial adviser and banks might all put forward lawyers to choose. Sometimes the lawyers might be known to one of the organisations as one of the best in their field, but occasionally there may be a financial incentive behind the endorsement. You have the discretion to appoint your preferred lawyer. However, bear in mind that the majority of mortgage providers specify a panel list of law firms you have to use for the lender aspect of your transaction.
