Our son is about to exchange on a newly built flat in North East London with a home loan from Aldermore. His conveyancer has advised him of a delay in completing the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. This document is news to me - what is it and who needs sight of it?
The form is intended to provide information to the main parties engaged in the purchase. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the Aldermore conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the surveyor 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 Aldermore conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.

- Get an alternative practitioner to to deal with the conveyancing, not forgetting to check they are Birmingham Midshires approved.
- Try to convince your Birmingham Midshires solicitor to try to join the Birmingham Midshires panel

I'm buying a new build house in North East London with the aid of help to buy. The developers would not budge the amount so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The property agent told me not disclose to my solicitor about the side-deal as it may affect my loan with Godiva Mortgages Ltd. 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.
A licensed conveyancer handled my conveyancing in North East London seven years past having archived my title documents but has since been shut down – What can I do to retreive them?
Deeds, as such, no longer exist as most homes in North East London are registered electronically at Land Registry. If you need to prove evidence of proprietorship or are selling or refinancing your conveyancing practitioner will need to obtain up to date copies of the register from the Land Registry in any case.
