My husband and I are purchasing a newly built flat in Hilton and my lawyer is advising me that she is duty bound to the bank to disclose incentives from the developer. I am under pressure to exchange and my preference is not to prolong deal. Is my lawyer right?
You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your conveyancer. A precondition to being on a lender panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook provisions. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.
A relative advised me that if I am buying in Hilton I should carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. Can you explain what the purpose of this search is?

It incorporates an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the Hilton Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the demographics of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average Property Price, Crime details, Hilton Education with maps and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful information concerning Hilton.

My brother is buying a basement flat in Hilton. He was given a quote by the solicitor connected to the selling agents totaling £1300 . It was fifteen years ago I sold and bought a property and the bill was £500. Have fees really escalated to that extent?
What does the conveyancing estimate include? Is it just for the legal fees, or what you will be paying in total (for instance Hilton searches, land registry fees, etc)
