Should conveyancers ask for money on account when it comes to conveyancing in Ringmer?
If you are buying a property in Ringmer your lawyer will request that you put them with funds to cover the search fees. This will be the total of the cost of the conveyancing searches. When the down payment is as part of the total price then this will be asked for shortly before exchange of contracts. Any further balance that is due should be transferred shortly before completion.
I am considering applying for a Leeds Building Society mortgage for purchase of a newly converted (under development) in Ringmer with 70% LTV. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Leeds Building Society ?
In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel, but Leeds Building Society would require one of their panel solicitors to be instructed to act in their interests, and you'd have to pay for this - so most people instruct a panel solicitor. It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same conveyancing matter.
We are due to move property in November. Should my conveyancing solicitor update the removal company on the completion day. On a separate note, can you suggest a removal company in Ringmer. Conveyancing firm was chosen prior to coming across your website.
On the afternoon of completion you will need to pick up the house keys from the estate agent but this can only occur once the sellers conveyancers inform the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be released. You should tell the removal men that you are ready to move in. We do not suggest a particular removal company but can assist you in locating a conveyancing in Ringmer or a lawyer with expertise in conveyancing in Ringmer.

We have agreed to purchase a house in Ringmer. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Principality have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?
As your lender is Principality your lawyer must follow the conveyancing instructions outlined in Part 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Principality. The CML Handbook includes minimum provisions for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancing practitioners are required to report to Principality where a lease fails to meet these specifications. The provisions relate to the installation of panels on properties nationwide and is not isolated to Ringmer.
I'm purchasing my first flat in Ringmer with a mortgage from The Royal Bank of Scotland. The builders refused to move on the amount so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The property agent suggested that I not inform my solicitor about this deal as it would affect my mortgage 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%.
