My wife and I are purchasing a newly built apartment in Rochdale and my solicitor is advising me that she is duty bound to the lender to disclose incentives from the seller. I am nearing the developer’s deadline to exchange and I have no desire to prolong the conveyancing. Is my lawyer right?
You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your solicitor. A precondition to being on a lender panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook requirements. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.
