It is is a decade since I bought my house in Sychdyn. Conveyancing solicitors have now been appointed on the sale but I can't track down the deeds. Will this jeopardise the sale?
You need not be too concerned. Firstly there is a chance that the deeds will be with your lender or they could stored with the solicitor who handled the purchase. Secondly in most cases the land will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to prove you are the registered owner by your conveyancing lawyers acquiring current official copies of the land registers. The vast majority of conveyancing in Sychdyn relates to registered property but in the unlikely event that your property is unregistered it is more problematic but is not insurmountable.
We just had an offer accepted to purchase with Earl Shilton BS. I called into a few local practices but am unable to find a Sychdyn conveyancing firm on the Earl Shilton BS approved list. Please you help?

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am wet behind the ears as a 1st time purchaser of a two bedroom flat in Sychdyn. Do I receive the keys to the property on the completion date from my lawyer? If so, I will use a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Sychdyn?
There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Conveyancing lawyers for you will electronically transfer the purchase money to the seller's solicitors, and once they have received this, you should be called to pick up the keys from the Estate Agents and move into your new home. Usually this happens between 1 and 3pm.
I am being told by my lawyer that defective lease insurance is necessary on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Sychdyn conveyancing?
The right level of defective lease indemnity insurance depends on who your lender is. It would differ for example between Birmingham Midshires and Leeds Building Society. Conveyancing lawyers as opposed to borrowers take out such insurances.

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly picked up as part of conveyancing in Sychdyn?
Covenants that are restrictive in nature can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the process of conveyancing in Sychdyn.

I am buying a new build house in Sychdyn with a mortgage from Coventry Building Society. The developers would not move on the amount so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The estate agent suggested that I not disclose to my solicitor about the side-deal as it could adversely affect my mortgage with Coventry Building Society. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
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.
