I can't travel far from Ewloe. Is there a reason why all Ewloe conveyancers are not on all lender panels?
Even though it may seem unfair for lenders to restrict who can act for them, from the public’s or solicitor’s point of view, the the contrary view is that lenders are becoming ever more anxious and feel it vital to defend themselves against illegal activities. As a result of this concern lenders have reduced their conveyancing panel to a size that they are happy to control.

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%.

Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my basement apartment in Ewloe. Conveyancing is yet to be initiated, however I have just received a quarterly service charge invoice – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?
It best that you pay the maintenance contribution as normal because all rents and maintenance invoices will be apportioned as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.
