We are about to exchange buying a property in Attleborough but as a consequence of damage from a small fire at the property I have was able negotiate recompense from the seller of £2k by way of a deduction in the price. This was going to be dealt with as part of the conveyancing process however Lloyds are not allowing this. Why were they informed?

Your solicitor being on a Lloyds approved list is duty bound to advise Lloyds of any variations to the purchase price. If you prohibit your conveyancer to notify the price change to Lloyds then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Lloyds and you would have to appoint a new lawyer for your conveyancing in Attleborough.

Have just purchased a repossessed house at auction in Attleborough. Conveyancing is necessary. What are my next steps?

Now that you have exchanged you will need to appoint a conveyancing lawyer soon as you are faced with a fast approaching deadline in which to complete the deal. An auction property will have a corresponding auction pack. This should include the copy title deeds, local authority and drainage searches. Where you are dealing with leasehold premises the auction pack should contain a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and associated conveyancing documentation relating to leasehold premises. You must give this to the lawyer instructed by you as soon as possible. Do make sure that you have funds in order to complete on the date specified in the contract.

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am unseasoned as FTB of a two bedroom flat in Attleborough. Do I receive the keys to the premises on the completion date from my lawyer? If this is the case, I will instruct a local conveyancing solicitor in Attleborough?

On the day of completion you will not be required to attend the conveyancers office in Attleborough. Conveyancing lawyers for you will electronically transfer the purchase money to the owner’s conveyancers, and once they have received this, you will be called to collect the keys from the selling Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen between 1 and 3pm.

We have agreed to purchase a house in Attleborough. An unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Nationwide have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?

As you are obtaining a mortgage with Nationwide your lawyer must follow the formal requirements outlined in Section two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Nationwide. The CML Handbook contains minimum specifications for solar panel roof-space leases, and lawyers are required to report to Nationwide where a lease fails to meet these provisions. The specifications relate to the installation of panels on properties countrywide and is not isolated to Attleborough.

I am buying my first flat in Attleborough with the aid of help to buy. The builders would not move on the price so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The house builders rep advised me not reveal to my conveyancer about the side-deal as it may put at risk my mortgage with the bank. Should I keep quiet?.

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.

Am I best advised to choose a Attleborough conveyancing lawyer in close proximity to the house I am hoping to buy? I have an old university friend who can handle the legal work but her office is over three hundred kilometers away.

The benefit of a local Attleborough conveyancing firm is that you can pop in to execute documents, hand in your identification documents and pester them where appropriate. Having local Attleborough know how is a bonus. However nothing is more important than finding someone that will do a good and efficient job. If other friends have instructed your friend and the majority were happy that should surpass using an unknown Attleborough conveyancing lawyer solely due to them being based in the area.
