I am in the market for a low cost conveyancer. Do I opt for an internet conveyancer as opposed to a family Goodmayes conveyancing lawyer?
Existing third party connections are another important factor to consider when appointing conveyancing lawyers. Goodmayes conveyancers enjoy connections with lenders and Goodmayes, local authorities, valuers and other law firms meaning you will move in shortest possible time. Hosting a wealth of intelligence of the local area also helps too.
We're in Goodmayes, FTBs purchasing with a mortgage (lender is Aldermore , and our lawyer is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?
The fact that your lawyer is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not. However, no lawyer should guarantee a timeframe for your conveyancing, due to third parties outside of your control such as delays caused by lenders,conveyancing search providers or by the other side’s solicitors. The time taken is often determined by the number of parties in a chain.
I am purchasing my first flat in Goodmayes benefiting from help to buy. The sellers refused to move on the price so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The house builders rep suggested that I not disclose to my solicitor about this deal as it will put at risk 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.

I am an executor of my recently deceased parent's Will, with a house in Goodmayes which is to be sold. The house is unregistered at HMLR and I'm told that many purchasers will insist that it is in place before they will proceed. What's the procedure for this?
In the situation that you have set out it seems prudent to seek to register in the names of the personal representative(s) as named in the probate and in their capacity as PRs. HMLR’s online guidance explains how to register for the first time and what is required re the deeds and forms. You would need to include and official copy of the probate as well and complete the form FR1 to refer to the PRs as the applicant.
