Can you point me to a directory of HSBC panel conveyancers in Wraysbury on the Building Society Association’s Website?
No. There is no such directory service on the CML or Building Society Association websites. Very few lending institutions make their panel listings visible on the web. If you are seeking to appoint a Wraysbury solicitor on the HSBC please make the most of our facility.
I had a mortgage agreed in principle with Santander. Wraysbury conveyancing practitioners are instructed. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Santander?
Some lenders take longer than others. Have Santander done the valuation? Have you advised Santander as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Santander conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.
I currently have a mortgage with Virgin Money for my property in Wraysbury. Conveyancing has been completed 12 months ago. Should I wish to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Virgin Money?
Virgin Money must be informed of your intention prior to renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Virgin Money’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Virgin Money will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Virgin Money directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Virgin Money conveyancing panel firm.
What does a local search reveal concerning the property my wife and I purchasing in Wraysbury?

I'm buying a new build house in Wraysbury benefiting from help to buy. The sellers would not budge the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of extras instead. The sale representative advised me not reveal to my conveyancer about the extras as it could adversely affect my loan with the lender. 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.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £245,000 and identified one near me in Wraysbury I like with amenity areas and railway links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 52 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Wraysbury suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?
If you require a home loan that many years may be an issue. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.
