Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there exists plenty of opportunity for confrontation between you and other parties involved in the ownership transfer. For example, the seller, selling agent and on occasion a lender. Choosing a law firm for your conveyancing in Snettisham an important selection as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONE person in the legal process whose responsibility is to act in your legal interests and to protect you.
Every so often a potential adversary will attempt to sway you that you should follow their advice. For example, the estate agent may claim to be assisting by suggesting your conveyancer is dragging his heels. Or your mortgage broker may advise you to do something that is against your conveyancers recommendation. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties in the home moving process.

I am purchasing my first flat in Snettisham benefiting from help to buy. The sellers would not budge the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder 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.
My conveyancers in Snettisham have advised me that they can not locate my conveyancing file. To assist with my purchase I took out a mortgage with the mortgage company. Is it case that being on the mortgage company conveyancing panel they need to have retained the file for a number of years?
It very much depends from lender to lender but many of the Terms and Conditions of Conveyancing Panel Appointment require the file to be held for a period of 6 years. That being said we have not seen a copy of the bank Conveyancing Panel Terms. It might be worth you contacting the lender directly.
