Various web forums that I have come across warn that are the primary reason for obstruction in Stroud house deals. Is that correct?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) has noted the determinations of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature within the top 10 causes of hindrances during the legal transfer of property.

Nowadays there are duplicates made of almost everything, and your conveyancer should be aware precisely where to find all the relevant documentation so you may purchase or dispose of your property without any difficulty. Where duplicates can’t be found, your solicitor may be able to arrange cover in the form of insurance or indemnities protecting you against future claims on the premises.

I am buying a new build house in Stroud with a loan from Lloyds TSB Bank. The builders refused to reduce the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The property agent suggested that I not reveal to my solicitor about this deal as it may put at risk my mortgage with the bank. 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.

I recently become aware that one of the directors of the solicitors handling the purchase conveyancing in Stroud is an uncle of the owners that we are purchasing from. Is this permitted?

As long as no conflict arises this is allowable. If you are needing a mortgage then the mortgage company may have a say as many lenders have specific requirements concerning this. For example for Santander A&L as of 8/12/2018, the requirements read as follows :

1.15- May your firm act if the person dealing with the transaction or a member of his immediate family is the borrower?

Yes, provided that a separate partner or fee earner (acting under the supervision of another partner)acts.
