We are purchasing a newly constructed duplex in Primrose Hill and my lawyer is informing me that she is duty bound to the bank to disclose incentives from the seller. I am under pressure to exchange and I don't want to delay matters. is my lawyer playing by the book?
You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your lawyer. A precondition to being on a bank panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.
Are the Primrose Hill conveyancing solicitors identified as being on the Nottingham conveyancing panel, together with their details provided by Nottingham?
Primrose Hill conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the Nottingham conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from Nottingham directly.
I am buying a semi-detached house in Primrose Hill. How practical is it for me to do the conveyancing?
Leaving aside the complexities and merits of DIY conveyancing in Primrose Hill you will have to appoint a solicitor on your mortgage company's conveyancing panel to look after their interests.

Furthermore there is minimal cost savings to be made in you doing conveyancing for yourself and another lawyer conducting the conveyancing for the lender.

I have a terraced Victorian property in Primrose Hill. Conveyancing lawyer acted for me and Coventry Building Society. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are two entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold under the exact same property. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?
You should read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Primrose Hill and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also check the situation with your conveyancing solicitor who conducted the purchase.
Taking into account that I am about to spend hundreds of thousands of pounds on a house in Primrose Hill I wish to have a conversation with the lawyer concerning thehome move ahead of giving the go ahead to the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?
