We are expecting a mortgage offer soon. The lender mentioned the mortgage came with free conveyancing. Does this mean I have to appoint their panel lawyer as I would prefer to use a South Normanton based conveyancing firm?

When it comes to conveyancing in South Normanton seeking recommendations is a good start. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer.

We would always recommend that you speak with the lawyer conducting your conveyancing.

Having digested plenty of mortgage guides, I note that it is considered advisable to get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local South Normanton solicitor - who is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. Is that normal?

Yorkshire BS will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Yorkshire BS will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your conveyancer will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your South Normanton postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Yorkshire BS, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in South Normanton.

My sealed bid on a house in South Normanton has been agreed to, the sellers do however have a connected purchase. The sellers have placed an offer on a property, but it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other apartments in the pipeline. I have instructed a nearby conveyancing solicitor in South Normanton. What should be my next step? When should I get the mortgage application with Clydesdale going?

It is normal to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs too early (home loan application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then survey, South Normanton conveyancing search costs, etc). First, you must check that your conveyancer is on the Clydesdale approved list. Regarding the next steps this very much depends on the circumstances of your transaction, desire for this property and on the state of the market. In a buoyant market many purchasers would apply for the mortgage with Clydesdale and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they ask their conveyancing practitioner to move forward with searches.

I'm buying my first flat in South Normanton with the aid of help to buy. The sellers refused to budge the amount so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The property agent suggested that I not to tell my solicitor about this side-deal as it could affect my mortgage with the bank. Is this normal?.

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.

Taking into account that I will soon part with 450k on a garden flat in South Normanton I would like to have a conversation with the solicitor regarding thetransaction in advance of instructing the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?

This is something that we recommend - it is our preference to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you liaising with the lawyer due to be doing your conveyancing in South Normanton.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - each client is unique individual, not a matter number. The practices that we put you in touch with believe that the fees you are provided with for your conveyancing in South Normanton should be the amount on the final invoice that you are charged.

Am I best advised to appoint a South Normanton conveyancing lawyer based in the location that I am buying? We have a good friend who can execute the legal work but her office is 400miles drive away.

The primary upside of using a high street South Normanton conveyancing practice is that you can visit the firm to sign documents, deliver your ID and apply pressure on them where appropriate. They will also have local intelligence which is a benefit. However nothing is more important than finding someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If other friends have used your friend and in the main were happy that must outweigh using an unknown South Normanton conveyancing lawyer just because they are local.
