Do not opt for the lowest Sneyd Park conveyancing quote. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.

I am planning to move house in July. Should my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the completion day. Incidentally, can you recommend a removal company in Sneyd Park. Conveyancing solicitor was chosen before I stumbled across this website.

I'm the single recipient of my late father’s will and I have everything in my name alone, including the house in Sneyd Park. The Sneyd Park property was put into my name in May. I want to move. I understand that there is a CML 6 month 'rule', meaning my property ownership could be regarded the same way as though I had purchased the property in May. Is the property unsalable for six months?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook instructs solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you might be affected by that. How sensible a view lenders take of it, depend on the lender as this obligation primarily exists to identify subsales or the wholesaling and assigning of properties.

It has been 3 months since my purchase conveyancing in Sneyd Park concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the asset from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

I am buying a new build house in Sneyd Park with a loan from Bank of Ireland. The builders would not move on the amount so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The property agent advised me not inform my solicitor about this side-deal as it would jeopardize my loan with the lender. Is this normal?.

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.
