I am purchasing a maisonette in Sandiacre. My property lawyer has never been on on the lender approved panel. Can I still appoint my Sandiacre conveyancing solicitor even though they are excluded from the bank panel of approved conveyancing solicitors?
You must instruct a conveyancing practitioner to deal with the formalities when you require a mortgage to buy your property. The conveyancing practitioner will carry out all the appropriate legal checks on the property, ensuring that you’re properly registered as the owner and ensure that all the necessary mortgage documentation is dealt with. You can instruct a Sandiacre conveyancing practitioner of your choosing. However, where the solicitor appointed is not a member of the mortgage company approved list additional fees will arise as separate legal representation will be required by them. Bank panel applications can be submitted, so if your solicitor has not in the past sought membership they should take the chance to apply.
Last March we completed a house move in Sandiacre. We have noticed several problems with the house which we consider were omitted in the conveyancing searches. Do we have any recourse? Can you clarify the nature of searches that needed to have been conducted as part of conveyancing in Sandiacre?
The query is vague as to the nature of the problems and if they are relate to conveyancing in Sandiacre. Conveyancing searches and investigations initiated as part of the buying process are carried out to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, a seller completes a questionnaire called a SPIF. answers provided is incorrect, then you may have a claim against the seller for any losses that you have suffered. The survey should have identified any problems with the structure of the property. Assuming a detailed survey was carried out and the issues were not identified, you may have a claim against the surveyor. However, if you did not have a full survey, you may be responsible for fixing any defects that have now been noted. We would always encourage buyers to take every possible step to ensure they are completely aware of the condition of a property before purchase regardless of whether they are buying in Sandiacre.

I am purchasing my first flat in Sandiacre with the aid of help to buy. The builders refused to reduce the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The sale representative advised me not to tell my conveyancer about this deal as it may affect my mortgage with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
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%.
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.
