I can't travel far from Wolstanton. What is the rationale as to why all Wolstanton lawyers are not on all lender panels?
Even though it may seem unfair for banks to limit who can represent them, from the public’s or solicitor’s viewpoint, the other side of the coin is that mortgage companies are increasingly anxious and regard it vital to protect them from illegal activities. As a result of this concern lenders are limiting their conveyancing panel to a manageable size.
I'm purchasing my first flat in Wolstanton benefiting from help to buy. The builders refused to reduce the price so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The property agent advised me not to tell my solicitor about the deal as it would jeopardize my mortgage with the bank. Is this normal?.
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.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on a fortnight ago in what should have been a quick, no chain conveyancing. Wolstanton is where the house is located. Can you offer any advice?
Flying freeholds in Wolstanton are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Wolstanton you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Wolstanton may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
How can the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 impact my business offices in Wolstanton and how can you help?
The particular law that you refer to provides a safeguard to commercial lessees, giving them the right to apply to court for a continuation of occupancy at the end of an expired lease. There are limited grounds that a landlord can refuse a lease renewal and the rules are complex. Fees are different for commercial conveyancing.

I have finally had an offer on an maisonette in Wolstanton accepted, the vendor does nevertheless have a tied purchase. The vendors have put an offer on somewhere, although it’s not yet tied up, and has viewings of other properties in the pipeline. I have instructed a nearby conveyancing lawyer in Wolstanton. What should be my next step? When should I get the mortgage application with Nottingham started with Nottingham?
It is understandable to have anxieties where there is a chain given your reluctance to incur expenses prematurely (home loan application is approx £1k, then valuation, Wolstanton conveyancing search fees, etc). The first course of action is to check that your conveyancing practitioner is on the Nottingham approved list. Regarding the next stages this very much depends on the uniqueness of your case, desire for the property and on the state of the market. During a hot market many buyers would apply for the mortgage with Nottingham and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their lawyer to press on with searches.
