I am about to exchange buying a house in Parson Cross but as a consequence of damage from a small fire at the property I have managed to agree compensation from the current proprietors of £2k in the form of a reduction in the price. I had intended this to be addressed as part of the conveyancing process but Kent Reliance are not allowing this. Why were they approached?
The solicitor being on the Kent Reliance approved list is obliged to advise Kent Reliance of any amendments to the purchase price. If you were to refuse your conveyancer to disclose the reduction to Kent Reliance then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Kent Reliance and you would have to appoint a new conveyancer for your conveyancing in Parson Cross.
It is a dozen years since I bought my property in Parson Cross. Conveyancing solicitors have recently been appointed on the sale but I am unable to locate the title documents. Is this a problem?
Don’t worry too much. Firstly the deeds may be retained by your mortgage company or they could be in the possession of the solicitor who oversaw the purchase. Secondly in most cases the land will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to prove you are the registered owner by your conveyancing lawyers procuring up to date copy of the land registers. Most conveyancing in Parson Cross relates to registered property but in the unlikely event that your home is not registered it is more problematic but is resolvable.
My colleague recommended that if I am purchasing in Parson Cross I should ask my conveyancer to carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. Can you explain what the purpose of this search is?

I am buying a new build house in Parson Cross with a mortgage from Clydesdale. The developers would not move on the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of extras instead. The property agent suggested that I not reveal to my solicitor about the deal as it would adversely affect my loan with the bank. 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.
