My grandson is in the process of securing a house that has just been built in Maesteg with a home loan from Yorkshire BS. His lawyer has advised him of 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 involved in the purchase. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the valuer when requested. 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 Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.
Can you clarify what the consequences are if my solicitor is expelled from the HSBC Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Maesteg?
The first thing to point out is that, this is very unlikely to happen. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit at a cost.
My stepmother pointed out to me me that in buying a property in Maesteg there may be a number of restrictions prohibiting external alterations to a property. Is this right?
We are aware of anumerous of properties in Maesteg which have some sort of restriction or requirement of consent to carry out external variations. Part of the conveyancing in Maesteg should determine what restrictions are applicable and advising you as part of a ROT that should be sent to you.
Can you point me to a directory of Skipton panel solicitors in Maesteg on the Council of Mortgage Lender’s Website?

I was told four weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by UBS. Is it usual for UBS to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Maesteg is approved on their conveyancing panel? UBS have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their Professional Indemnity Insurance Schedule.
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for UBS to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the UBS conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
We are buying a property and the lawyer has raised the issue of Chancel Repair to which the property may be obligated to pay given it’s proximity to the area of such a church. He has suggested insurance. Is this strictly warranted for conveyancing in Maesteg
Unless a previous purchase of the premises took place after 12 October 2013 you may expect lawyers delivering conveyancing in Maesteg to remain recommending a chancel search and or insurance against a claim.
