My nephew is buying a house that has just been built in Flackwell Heath with a mortgage from UBS. His conveyancer has said that there is a delay in receiving the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. This document is news to me - what is it and who needs sight of it?
The document is intended to provide information to the main parties involved in the purchase. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the UBS conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the valuer when asked. 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 UBS conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.
It is a dozen years since I bought my house in Flackwell Heath. Conveyancing solicitors have just been appointed on the sale but I am unable to track down my title documents. Will this cause complications?
You need not be too concerned. Firstly the deeds may be retained by your mortgage company or they may still be with the solicitor who handled your purchase. Secondly in all probability the property will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you are the registered owner by your conveyancing solicitors acquiring current official copies of the land registers. Nearly all conveyancing in Flackwell Heath involves registered property but in the rare situation where your property is unregistered it adds to the complexity but is resolvable.
Does a directory service exist listing Nottingham panel solicitors in Flackwell Heath on the Building Society Association’s Website?

I am expecting a DIP from Aldermore this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Aldermore recommend any Flackwell Heath solicitors on the Aldermore conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint Flackwell Heath solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Aldermore through the process.
I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with HSBC. I assume I don't need a Flackwell Heath lawyer on the HSBC panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.
If you have finished paying off your HSBC mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the HSBC mortgage from the register. HSBC, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:
- but are not moving to another property
- where HSBC has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- HSBC has instructed the Land Registry to do so
