Just bought a terraced house in Milnthorpe , how long will it take for the Land Registry to record my proprietorship? My Milnthorpe conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be sure the registration is concluded.

There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Milnthorpe registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can vary depending on who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry have to notify any third parties. At present roughly three quarters of submission are completed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be longer delays. Historically registration takes place after the purchaser has moved in to the premises therefore 'speed' is not typically an essential issue but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer could contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.

I am purchasing my first flat in Milnthorpe with a mortgage from Nationwide Building Society.

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.

I am about to exchange on the purchase a house in Milnthorpe but as a result of damage from the recent storms I have negotiated compensation from the owner of £2k taking the form of a deduction in the price. This was going to be addressed as part of the conveyancing process yet the mortgage company will not agree to this. Why were they informed?

Your solicitor listed on the bank conveyancing panel is obliged to advise the lender of any amendments to the sale amount. In the event that you did not allow your conveyancer to notify the reduction to your lender then they would have no choice but to refrain from representing you and the lender.
