Completed the sale of my flat in Emersons Green last May yet the purchaser is calling every few hours complaining that his solicitor needs to hear from mine. What are the post completion sale legalities following completion?
Following your sale your conveyancer is committed to send the transfer documentation and all of the paperwork to the buyer’s solicitors. Depending on the transaction, your lawyer should also confirm that the legal charge in favour of the lender has been paid off to the purchasers solicitors. There is unlikely to be post completion requirements just for conveyancing in Emersons Green.
I have been told that property searches are the number one reason for hinderance in Emersons Green house deals. Is that correct?

I am buying a new build house in Emersons Green benefiting from help to buy. The sellers refused to budge the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The property agent advised me not to tell my conveyancer about the side-deal as it will impact my loan with Yorkshire Building Society. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
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.
