My partner and I are acquiring a new build duplex in Rye and my lawyer is telling me that she is duty bound to the bank to reveal incentives from the seller. I am nearing the developer’s deadline to exchange and I have no desire to delay 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 mortgage company panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.

How does conveyancing in Rye differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Rye come to us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is built. This is because developers in Rye usually buy the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Rye or who has acted in the same development.
