I have been referred to a conveyancing solicitor in Easton. I I am struggling to find out whether they are accepted on the Godiva Mortgages Ltd approved list of lawyers. Can you advise?
The first thing you should do is call the lawyer and enquire whether they are on the lender panel. Alternatively you should get in touch with Godiva Mortgages Ltd who may be able to confirm.
I am purchasing a new build house in Easton with a loan from Barclays Direct. The sellers refused to budge the price so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The property agent suggested that I not to tell my conveyancer about this extras as it will impact my loan with the lender. Should I keep quiet?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

Are Easton conveyancing solicitors duty bound by the Law Society to issue clear conveyancing costs?
Contained within the Solicitors Code of Conduct are prescriptive rules and regulations as to how the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) allow solicitors to publicise their charges to clients.The Law Society have a practice note giving advice on how to publicise transparent charges to avoid breaching any such rule. Practice notes are not legal advice issued by the Law Society and is not intended as the only standard of good practice a conveyancing solicitor should adhere to. The Practice Note does, nevertheless, represent the Law Society’s view of acceptable practice for publicising conveyancing charges, and accordingly it’s a recommended read for any solicitor or conveyancer in Easton or or elsewhere in the country.
