Having been suggested to visit your web site we were about to appoint conveyancing solicitor in Greater Manchester endorsed using your search tool but stumbled across some other costs illustrations on the internet appear less pricey – how come?

There are numerous conveyancers advertising what appear to be very low prices.

My wife and I are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our home in Greater Manchester and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was built land that was not decontaminated. A local lawyer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the purchasers instructed an online conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Greater Manchester. We have lived in Greater Manchester for three years we know that this is a non issue. Should we contact our local Authority to seek clarification that there is no issue.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. What do they say? You should enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same illness)

I am purchasing a new build house in Greater Manchester with a mortgage from Norwich and Peterborough Building Society. The builders refused to budge the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of extras instead. The house builders rep told me not inform my solicitor about the extras as it could adversely affect my mortgage with the bank. Should I keep quiet?.

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.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and found one round the corner in Greater Manchester I like with open areas and railway links nearby, the downside is that it only has 51 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Greater Manchester for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?

Should you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be problematic. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.
