My son is about to exchange on a new build apartment in Kirkby In Furness with a home loan from Kent Reliance. His lawyer has said that there is a delay in receiving the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. This document is news to me - what is it and who needs sight of it?

The form is intended to provide information to the main parties engaged in the transaction. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the valuer when asked. The developer will be required to start the process by downloading the form and completing it. The form will therefore need to be available for the valuer at the time of his or her site visit. The form should be sent to the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.

Planning on purchasing a maisonette in Kirkby In Furness.

I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the HSBC conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Kirkby In Furness lawyer is on the HSBC conveyancing panel.

Most buyers of new build property in Kirkby In Furness contact us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is ready to move into. This is because builders in Kirkby In Furness typically buy the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties.

I’m about to sell my basement apartment in Kirkby In Furness. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, but I have just had a quarterly service charge invoice – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?

Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should clear the maintenance contribution as usual as all ground rent and maintenance invoices should be allotted as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date.
