I am considering applying for a Barclays mortgage for purchase of a newly converted (under development) in Wingate with 70% loan to value. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Barclays ?

There is nothing to stop you using your solicitor, but Barclays will insist on their interests being represented by a firm on their conveyancing panel. There is greater potential for delays and confusion with an additional lawyer added to the mix, and it will undoubtedly be more expensive too.

My colleague recommended that where I am buying in Wingate I should ask my conveyancer to execute a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. What does it cover?

This is a search is occasionally included in the estimate for your Wingate conveyancing searches. It is a large report of more than thirty pages, listing and setting out important information about Wingate around the property and the people living there. It includes an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the local Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the demographics of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average House Prices, Crime details, Local Education with maps and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful information regarding Wingate.

3 months have gone by since my purchase conveyancing in Wingate concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £180,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the premises from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

I am purchasing my first flat in Wingate with a loan from Bank of Scotland. The developers would not move on the price so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The sale representative advised me not disclose to my lawyer about the extras as it would put at risk my loan with the bank. Is this normal?.

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.

I am using a search engine for the term on line conveyancing in Wingate it reveals many property lawyerslocally. With so much choice what is the best way to find the right conveyancer for me?

The best way of choosing a suitable conveyancer is through a personal recommendation, so seek the guidance of friends and those you trust who have bought a property in Wingate or a local estate agent or financial adviser. Fees for conveyancing in Wingate differ, so it's sensible to secure a minimum of four estimates from different conveyancers. Dont forget to clarify what costs in the quote includes.
