I am purchasing a new build duplex in Irlam and Cadishead and my lawyer is advising me that she is duty bound to the mortgage company to disclose incentives from the builder. I am on a tight deadline to sign contracts and I have no desire to delay matters. Is my lawyer right?
You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your property lawyer. 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.
Can I be sure that the Irlam and Cadishead conveyancing solicitor on the HSBC panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Irlam and Cadishead obtaining recommendations is a sensible start. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one advertising the lowest fees. We would always recommend that you speak with the solicitor carrying out your conveyancing.
The mortgage over my property is with Skipton for my property in Irlam and Cadishead. Conveyancing has been completed 12 months ago. Should I wish to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform Skipton?
Skipton must be informed of your intention prior to renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Skipton’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Skipton directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Skipton conveyancing panel firm.

How does conveyancing in Irlam and Cadishead differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Irlam and Cadishead come to us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is completed. This is because builders in Irlam and Cadishead typically purchase the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Irlam and Cadishead or who has acted in the same development.
