We are purchasing our first house. The solicitor has calledto enquire if we would like to purchase supplemental conveyancing searches. As novices we in the dark as to what's needed for conveyancing in Sheldon

The type of Sheldon conveyancing searches depends entirely on the premises, the location, the possibility of any of these risks, your knowledge of the area and risks, your general approach to risk.

Should you be unclear, ask the conveyancer to offer guidance.

We are expecting a mortgage offer soon. The lender mentioned the loan came with free conveyancing. Is the implication that I have to use their panel solicitor as I would prefer to instruct a Sheldon based conveyancing firm?

Do check but the chances are that give you one of their panel conveyancers where you want the "fee-free" deal. Call the bank to explore if they allow a cash alternative. In the past a few mortgage companies offered a £250 cashback as a further option in which case that money can go towards your preferred conveyancing solicitor in Sheldon.

I am purchasing my first flat in Sheldon benefiting from help to buy. The builders would not budge the price so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead.

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.

I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and found one round the corner in Sheldon I like with a park and railway links nearby, however it's only got 51 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Sheldon for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a home loan that many years will be an issue. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you may request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.

I have noted on a number of consumer advice websites that when choosing a conveyancing solicitors they must be approved by your bank. I am a FTB but I have an offer in principle via HSBC and I already have a family conveyancing solicitor in Sheldon in place. Does Nat West Bank need an approved lawyer to be instructed? If so, where do I find that list for my conveyancing in Sheldon?

You should use a solicitor that is on the Nat West Bank panel. Just telephone your chosen Sheldon conveyancing lawyer and ask if they are on the Nat West Bank panel. If they are not approved you have a number of choices open to you here:

  • Proceed with your preferred Sheldon property lawyer but Nat West Bank will undoubtedly use a lawyer on their approved list. This will result in additional charges and likely delay.
  • Choose a new solicitor to conduct the conveyancing, obviously checking they are on the Nat West Bank conveyancing panel.
  • Appeal to your conveyancer to apply to join the mortgage company panel.
