We are purchasing a newly built flat in Mevagissey and my solicitor is advising me that she is duty bound to the mortgage company to disclose incentives from the builder. I am nearing the developer’s deadline to exchange contracts and I don't want to prolong matters. is my lawyer playing by the book?

You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your conveyancing practitioner. A precondition to being on a mortgage company 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.

As a FTB what is the most important number one tip you can give me about purchase conveyancing in Mevagissey?

Not many law firms or advisers will tell you this but conveyancing in Mevagissey and elsewhere in England and Wales is often a confrontational process. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there is plenty of opportunity for friction between you and others involved in the ownership transfer. For example, the vendor, property agent and even potentially the mortgage company. Choosing a lawyer for your conveyancing in Mevagissey is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY person in the transaction whose responsibility is to protect your best interests and to keep you safe.

We are witnessing a worrying increase of a "blame" culture- someone must be blamed for the process taking so long. You your first instinct should be to trust your conveyancer ahead of all other players in the conveyancing process.

We are buying a 3 bedroom flat in Mevagissey with a mortgage from Virgin Money.We like our Mevagissey conveyancing lawyer but Virgin Money informed us he's not listed on their "panel". It seems we are left with no choice but to instruct a Virgin Money panel firm or keep our high street solicitor and pay for a Virgin Money panel lawyer to represent them. We feel as though this is unjust; Can we not simply insist that Virgin Money use our lawyer?

Unfortunately,no. The mortgage offered to you contains terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will be on the Virgin Money approved list. in the past, most lenders had large numbers of solicitors on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Virgin Money

We are not in the business of recommending one firm above another as the right Mevagissey conveyancing firm for you depends on where your priorities lie.

We recommend that you speak to 3 or 4 lawyers listed before you make your choice..
