I'm purchasing a new build house in Kings Norton with the aid of help to buy. The builders refused to budge the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead.

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.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Kings Norton is where the house is located. Can you offer any opinion?

Flying freeholds in Kings Norton are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Kings Norton you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Kings Norton may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.

My work colleague mentioned that before selecting a conveyancing solicitors they need approved by your bank. It happens to be my first home move but I have an AIP from Virgin Money and I already have a local conveyancing solicitor in Kings Norton in place. Does HSBC insist on an approved conveyancer to be selected? If so, where can I find that list so I can appoint a conveyancing lawyer in Kings Norton?

You need to instruct a solicitor that is on the HSBC panel. The simplest thing to do is ring your chosen Kings Norton conveyancing lawyer and ask if they are on the HSBC panel. If they are not on the panel you have a number of options available to you here:

  • Complete the deal with your chosen Kings Norton conveyancing practitioner but HSBC will no doubt retain a lawyer from their approved panel. The net result is additional charges together with potential frustration.
  • Choose a fresh conveyancer to act in the purchase, obviously checking they are on the HSBC conveyancing panel.
  • Appeal to your solicitor to attempt to join the lender panel.
