Is it correct that all Frinton On Sea CQS (Conveyancing Quality Scheme) solicitors are on the Aldermore conveyancing list of approved firms?
Some major lenders now make use of the accreditation scheme as the kick off point for Panel approval such as HSBC and Santander. The Law Society’s CQS membership however is no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. Nevertheless,the Council of Mortgage Lenders have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for solicitors wishing to join their approved list of conveyancing solicitors.
We previously appointed conveyancing lawyers with offices in Frinton On Sea on the Clydesdale solicitor approved list. They are now charging me an additional fee for handling the Clydesdale mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by Clydesdale?
Provided it is contained in their Terms of Engagement or Quote then yes your lawyer can levy a fee for this. The fee is not set by Clydesdale but by your Frinton On Sea conveyancing practitioner. Plenty of firms on the Clydesdale panel will charge an ‘acting for lender’ fee and others do not.
About to purchase house in Frinton On Sea. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the TSB conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Frinton On Sea lawyer is on the TSB conveyancing panel.
I am purchasing my first flat in Frinton On Sea with a mortgage from Clydesdale. The builders would not reduce the amount so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The property agent advised me not disclose to my conveyancer about the side-deal as it may adversely affect my mortgage with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder 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.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what should have been a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Frinton On Sea is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?

You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
I am on look out for some leasehold conveyancing in Frinton On Sea. Before I set the wheels in motion I would like to find out the unexpired term of the lease.
If the lease is recorded at the land registry - and most are in Frinton On Sea - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
