My fiance’s mother is a property lawyer. I am hopeful that I will receive preferential rates for conveyancing, However if that does not come materialise, what level of fees should I be expecting for conveyancing in Torpoint?
Do compare pricing. Do use our search tool on this page. Whilst prices may contrast greatly but service levels do are distinct between conveyancers as is true with most professions.
I have a decision in principle. The lender mentioned the home loan came with free conveyancing. Is the implication that I have to use their panel conveyancer as I would prefer to instruct a specialised conveyancing solicitor in Torpoint?
You should check but the chances are that allocate you one of their panel solicitors where you want the "fee-free" incentive. Call the lender to determine if they make available a monetary alternative. In the past a few mortgage companies offered a £250 cashback as a further option in which case that money can go towards the cost for your conveyancing solicitor in Torpoint.

I'm buying my first flat in Torpoint with a mortgage from Barclays . The sellers would not reduce the price so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The estate agent suggested that I not disclose to my conveyancer about the side-deal as it would impact my mortgage with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
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.
