Please help. My Aylesford solicitor is informing me me that he is legally obliged toapply for Aylesford conveyancing searches due to the fact thatthe firm are on the HSBCconveyancing panel. Is this really necessary?

Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. As you are obtaining a mortgage with a lender your conveyancing practitioner has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your conveyancer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your bank’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to follow the CML Handbook specifications . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Aylesford conveyancing searches.

My uncle passed away six months ago and as sole heir and executor I was left the house in Aylesford. The house had a small mortgage remaining of approximately £8000. I want to transfer the title deeds into my name whilst I re-mortgage to Aldermore, pay off the mortgage. Is this allowed?

Where you intend to refinance then Aldermore will require that you use a conveyancer on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. Here is link to the Land Registry online guidance around what to do when a property owner dies. This will help you to understand the registration process behind changing the details re the registered title. in your case it would appear that you are effectively purchasing the property from the estate. Your Aldermore conveyancing panel solicitor pays the new mortgage money into the estate, the estate pays off the old mortgage, the charge is released and you become the owner and the Aldermore mortgage is registered as a charge at the Land Registry.

Is it the case that all Aylesford solicitor firms on the Aldermore conveyancing panel are regulated by the SRA?

As solicitors, in order to be on the Aldermore approved list of solicitors they would need to be regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. Many mortgage companies do permit licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such practice would be governed by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.

I can not fathom if my lender requires a lease extension. I have called my Aylesford building society branch on various occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they will lend. My Aylesford conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- called to say that they will not lend based on their published requirements. Who do I believe?

As long as the conveyancer is on the mortgage company approved list, she or he must follow the CML Handbook conditions for the lender. 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 mortgage company to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

Planning on purchasing a house in Aylesford. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Aylesford lawyer is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel.

I am purchasing my first flat in Aylesford with a loan from Godiva Mortgages Ltd. The builders would not budge the amount so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The sale representative suggested that I not inform my solicitor about this deal as it would put at risk my loan 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.

I opted to have a survey completed on a property in Aylesford prior to instructing lawyers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold aspect to the property. Our surveyor has said that some mortgage companies may not issue a mortgage on a flying freehold home.
