Our nephew is purchasing a new build apartment in Truro with a home loan from Nationwide. His lawyer has said that there is a delay in completing the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. Who needs to receive the form?
The form is intended to provide information to the main parties engaged in the purchase. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the Nationwide conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the surveyor when requested. The developer will be required to start the process by downloading the form and completing it. The form will therefore need to be available for the valuer at the time of his or her site visit. The form should be sent to the Nationwide conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.

I am the only beneficiary of my late father’s estate and I have everything in my name now, including the my former home in Truro. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in June. I plan to dispose of the property. I do know about the CML six month 'rule', which means that my property ownership will be treated the same way as though I had purchased the property in June. Will no one buy the property for half a year?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook mandates conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you could be impacted by that. Some banks would take a pragmatic view as this clause is primarily there to pick up on subsales or the wholesaling and assigning of properties.
Principality have agreed my home loan in principle, my bid on a apartment in Truro has been agreed to, what happens next?
Your estate agent will wish to be advised as to your conveyancing practitioner's details (ensure that the lawyers are on the lender’s panel). Call up Principality or the broker and complete any appropriate documentation. Principality will appoint a valuer who will get in touch with the estate agent or owners to book an appointment. Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes on average a week to receive the mortgage offer. Principality will issue the offer to you and your conveyancers. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Truro.
At last I have had an offer on an apartment in Truro accepted, but there is a chain. The owners have put an offer on on an apartment, but it’s not yet agreed to, and are looking at other flats in the pipeline. I have instructed a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Truro. What should be my next step? At what point do I apply for the mortgage with TSB?
It is normal to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs too early (home loan application is approx one thousand pounds, then survey, Truro conveyancing search fees, etc). The first thing to do is check that your solicitor is on the TSB conveyancing panel. Concerning the subsequent phase this very much dictated by the specifics of your case, desire for this property and on the state of the market. During a hot market some home buyers would apply for a home loan with TSB and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they ask their conveyancing practitioner to move forward with searches.
In what way can the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 affect my business offices in Truro and how can you help?
The particular law that you refer to gives a safeguard to business leaseholders, giving them the legal entitlement to apply to court for a renewal lease and remain in occupation when the lease reaches an end. There are limited grounds where a landlord can refrain from granting a lease renewal and the rules are complex. Fees are different for commercial conveyancing.
