Established third party connections is an important consideration when choosing conveyancing solicitors. Mortimer law firms often have connections with lenders and selling, local authorities, valuers and other conveyancing firms meaning the whole process is going to be much more straightforward for you. Hosting a well rounded intelligence of the local area also helps too.

We're in Mortimer, First timers buying with a mortgage (lender is Aldermore , and our lawyer is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?

The fact that your lawyer is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not. However, no lawyer should guarantee a timeframe for your conveyancing, due to third parties outside of your control such as delays caused by lenders,conveyancing search providers or by the other side’s solicitors. The time taken is often determined by the number of parties in a chain.

It has been 3 months since my purchase conveyancing in Mortimer concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £160,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the premises from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

I'm purchasing a new build house in Mortimer with a loan from Birmingham Midshires. The sellers would not move on the amount so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The house builders rep told me not reveal to my solicitor about the deal as it could adversely affect my mortgage with Birmingham Midshires. Should I keep quiet?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer 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.

Am I best advised to go with a Mortimer conveyancing solicitor who is local to the property I am hoping to buy? I have an old university friend who can execute the conveyancing but they are based 300miles away.

The benefit of a high street Mortimer conveyancing practice is that you can drop in to sign paperwork, hand in your identification documents and pester them where appropriate. Having local Mortimer know how is a bonus. That being said it's more important to get someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If you know people who instructed your friend and on the whole were content that must outweigh using an unknown Mortimer conveyancing solicitor just because they are local.
