My partner and I are purchasing a newly constructed duplex in Adamsdown and my conveyancer is informing me that she is duty bound to the lender to disclose incentives from the developer. I am under pressure to exchange and I would rather not delay matters. Is my lawyer right?

Do not opt for the lowest Adamsdown conveyancing quote. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.

Your conveyancer should check the deeds as conveyancing in Adamsdown can occasionally reveal restrictions in the title documents which restrict certain works or necessitated the permission of another owner. Many works need local authority planning consent and approval in compliance with building regulations. Some locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or impact extensions. You should check these issues with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.

I can not work out if my bank obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have telephoned my Adamsdown building society branch on various occasions and was advised it wasn't an issue and they would lend. My Adamsdown conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they refuse to lend in accordance with their published requirements. Who do I believe?

As long as the conveyancing practitioner is on the bank panel, they must follow the CML Handbook requirements for the bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.
