I am due to move house in October. Does my conveyancing solicitor update the removal company on the completion day. As an aside, can you suggest a removal company in Wantage. Conveyancing firm was organised prior to coming across your website.

On the day of completion you will need to pick up the house keys from the selling agent but this can only happen once the previous owners solicitors advise the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be released. After that you should advise the removal men that they can start moving you in. We do not recommend a particular removal company but can help you find a residential property solicitor in Wantage or a lawyer with expertise in conveyancing in Wantage.

We had appointed conveyancing lawyers located in Wantage on the TSB solicitor approved list. They have just billed me a supplemental fee for handling the TSB mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by TSB?

As unfair as it may seem, as long as it’s in their Terms of Engagement or Quote then yes your conveyancing practitioner can charge a fee for this. The charge is not set by TSB but by your Wantage conveyancing practitioner. Plenty of firms on the TSB panel will charge ’dealing with mortgage’ fee and others do not.

I have paid off my mortgage with Barclays. I assume I don't need a Wantage property lawyer on the Barclays panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.

If you have finished paying off your Barclays mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Barclays mortgage from the register. Barclays, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where Barclays has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. Barclays has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Barclays mortgage has been paid off.

I'm purchasing my first flat in Wantage with the aid of help to buy. The builders would not reduce the price so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The estate agent advised me not inform my conveyancer about the deal as it could adversely affect my loan with the bank. Should I keep quiet?.

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.
