I have been referred to a conveyancing solicitor in Babbacombe. I I am struggling to find out if they are on the Barnsley Building Society approved list of lawyers. Can you or the lender confirm if they are on the panel?
You should call your conveyancer and enquire if they can act for the bank. Otherwise please call Barnsley Building Society who may be able to confirm.
My wife and I are downsizing from our house in Babbacombe and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was built land that was not decontaminated. A local lawyer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the buyers used an online conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Babbacombe. We have lived in Babbacombe for many years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to obtain clarification need.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm already. What do they say? You need to enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same illness)
five months have elapsed since my purchase conveyancing in Babbacombe completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
I'm buying my first flat in Babbacombe with a mortgage from The Royal Bank of Scotland. The developers refused to budge the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The house builders rep suggested that I not inform my lawyer about this deal as it will jeopardize my loan with the lender. Should I keep quiet?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder 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.

In my capacity as executor for the estate of my uncle I am disposing of a property in Newport but reside in Babbacombe. My solicitor (approximately 260 kilometers awayhas requested that I execute a statutory declaration prior to completion. Could you suggest a conveyancing solicitor in Babbacombe to witness this legal document for me?
strictly speaking you are not likely to need to have the documents witnessed by a conveyancing solicitor. Normally or notary public or solicitor will be fine regardless of whether they are based in Babbacombe
