I am purchasing a newly built duplex in Walthamstow and my lawyer is advising me that she is duty bound to the mortgage company to disclose incentives from the seller. I am nearing the developer’s deadline to exchange and I would rather not delay matters. is my lawyer playing by the book?

You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your lawyer. A precondition to being on a bank panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook provisions. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.

Following the demise of HIPs, energy performance certificates was retained a mandatory element of selling a house. An EPC must be commissioned before the property is placed on the market. This is not as aspect of the sale process that lawyers ordinarily organise.

I'm the sole recipient of my late mum's will and I have everything in my name alone, including the my former home in Walthamstow. The Walthamstow property was put into my name in March. I plan to dispose of the house. I understand that there is a CML six month 'rule', which means that my property ownership will be considered the same way as if I'd bought the property in March. Do I have to wait 6 months to sell?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook instructs 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 might be impacted by that. How sensible a view banks take of it, depend on the lender as this clause is principally there to identify subsales or the quick reselling of properties.

Our offer on a property in Walthamstow has been accepted, but there is a chain. The owners have offered on on an apartment, however it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other properties booked. I have chosen a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Walthamstow. What do I do now? When should I get the mortgage application with HSBC started?

It is normal to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (mortgage application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then valuation, Walthamstow conveyancing search costs, etc). First, you must check that your conveyancing practitioner is on the HSBC conveyancing panel. As to the subsequent steps this very much dictated by the uniqueness of your transaction, motivation for the property and on the state of the market. In a rising market many buyers would apply for a home loan with HSBC and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they request their lawyer to press on with the conveyancing in Walthamstow.
