My nephew is in the process of securing a new build apartment in Whickham with a mortgage from Barclays. His solicitor has said that there is a delay in completing the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. What is this document - I have never come across this before?

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 Barclays conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the valuer when asked. 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 Barclays conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.

If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Whickham.

I am buying a garden flat in Whickham. Conveyancing lawyer has been waiting for, from the vendor, building insurance schedule.

Is it really necessary? We have been waiting for the last month…

It is not impossible in leasehold conveyancing in Whickham to find Conveyancing in Whickham in a minority of cases reveals that the lease requires the leasehold owners to insure their individual flats rather than the landlord insuring the entire building - which is clearly preferable. Do check with your conveyancing practitioner but it would appear that your lawyer is attempting to establish that the complete building is insured. Insuring a ground floor apartment is no help when it comes to rebuilding after a fire if the 1st floor cannot be rebuilt as a result of lack of insurance cover.
