You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your solicitor. A precondition to being on a mortgage company panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook requirements. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.

This question may be naive but I am new to the home moving as a first time purchaser of a two bedroom flat in Newcastle upon Tyne. Do I pick up the keys to the premises on the completion date from my lawyer? If this is the case, I will instruct a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Newcastle upon Tyne?

There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Conveyancing lawyers for you will arrange to send the purchase money to the owner’s solicitors, and once they have received this, you will be invited to collect the keys from the property Agents and start moving into the property. Usually this occurs between 1 and 3pm.

We expect to receive a OIP from Skipton this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc).

You will need to appoint Newcastle upon Tyne solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Skipton conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Skipton through the process.

However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service with full details of your complaint.
