Just bought a semi-detached house in Kingsbridge , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing my ownership? My Kingsbridge conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to be certain the land registry aspects are addressed.

As far as conveyancing in Kingsbridge registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of the country. Rather than based on location, timeframes can adjust depending on the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry must send notices to any interested persons or bodies. Currently approximately three quarters of submission are completed within 12 days but some can be subject to protracted delays. Historically registration is effected once the purchaser is living at the premises so post completion formalities is not typically primary concern yet where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your lawyers should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.

I'm purchasing a new build house in Kingsbridge with a mortgage from The Mortgage Works. The builders would not reduce the amount so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The house builders rep told me not reveal to my lawyer about the extras as it would affect my mortgage with The Mortgage Works. Is this normal?.

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 flat up to £235,500 and found one near me in Kingsbridge I like with amenity areas and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 51 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Kingsbridge in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be an issue. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you may ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this.

Am I best advised to go with a Kingsbridge conveyancing practitioner in close proximity to the house I am hoping to buy? We have a good friend who can carry out the conveyancing but her office is a couple of hundredkilometers drive away.

The benefit of a local Kingsbridge conveyancing firm is that you can visit the firm to execute paperwork, deliver your identification documents and pester them where appropriate. They will also have local knowledge which is a plus. However nothing is more important than finding someone that will do a good and efficient job. If other friends have instructed your friend and on the whole were impressed that should outweigh using an unfamiliar Kingsbridge conveyancing lawyer solely due to them being Kingsbridge based.
