A friend pointed out to me me that in buying a property in Purfleet there may be a number of restrictions preventing external alterations to the property. Is this right?
There are a number of properties in Purfleet which have some sort of restriction or requirement of consent to execute external changes. Part of the conveyancing in Purfleet should determine what restrictions are applicable and advising you as part of a ROT that should be sent to you.
Is it the case that all Purfleet solicitors on the UBS conveyancing panel are overseen by the SRA?
As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the UBS approved list of solicitors they would need to be governed by the SRA. Some lenders do allow licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such organisation would be governed by the CLC.
Can I be sure that the Purfleet conveyancing solicitor on the Leeds Building Society panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Purfleet obtaining recommendations is a good starting point. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one which is cheap as chips. We would always suggest that you speak with the lawyer conducting your transaction.
three months have elapsed following my purchase conveyancing in Purfleet took place. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the asset from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
I am buying my first flat in Purfleet benefiting from help to buy. The developers refused to reduce the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of extras instead. The sale representative advised me not disclose to my lawyer about this side-deal as it may adversely affect my mortgage with the bank. Should I keep quiet?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder 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.

We're FTB’s - had an offer accepted, but the estate agent informed us that the vendor will only proceed if we appoint the agent's preferred solicitors as they need an ‘expedited deal’. We would rather use a local conveyancer who is familiar with conveyancing in Purfleet
It is unlikely the sellers are driving this. If they desire ‘a quick sale', turning down a motivated purchaser is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Speak to the owners direct and make the point that (a)you are serious buyers (b)you are ready to progress, with mortgage lined up © you are chain free (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you intend to instruct your preferred Purfleet conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will provide their negotiator at the agency a commission or meet his conveyancing targets demanded by senior management.
