Our grandson is in the process of securing a new build apartment in Mulbarton with a mortgage from Nottingham. His solicitor has advised him of a delay in receiving the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. What is this document - I have never come across this before?
The document 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 Nottingham 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 Nottingham conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.

What happens if my solicitor is suspended from the Nottingham Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Mulbarton?
The first thing to point out is that, this is a very rare occurrence. 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.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and identified one round the corner in Mulbarton I like with open areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 51 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Mulbarton for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?
If you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you can ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.
I pay a service charge for my appartment in Mulbarton. As a result of personal circumstances I slipped into arrears with remittance. The freeholders agreed a settlement schedule but there is still a couple of due to be paid.
I now wish to dispose of the property and I am concerned this may jeopardize the sale if I have to pay off the arrears now. I'd like to sell up and then discharge the arrears from the completion monies - is this possible?
The solicitor dealing with your Mulbarton sale will hopefully be in a position to negotiate with the appropriate parties, with a new to seeing if they would accept payment out of the sale proceeds. This is indicative of why it is sensible to select a property lawyer in Mulbarton as they are likely to enjoy an established relationship with the management company.
