I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Barrow upon Humber. I have a mortgage agreed with Leeds Building Society. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?

It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds.

I am downsizing from our home in Barrow upon Humber and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was built on contaminated land. A high street Barrow upon Humber lawyer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers are using a factory type conveyancing practice rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Barrow upon Humber. We have lived in Barrow upon Humber for 4 years we know that this is a non issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to obtain confirmation that the buyers are looking for.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You must 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 ailment)

I am buying my first flat in Barrow upon Humber with a loan from Barnsley Building Society. The sellers would not reduce the amount so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The estate agent advised me not to tell my conveyancer about the deal as it will adversely affect my mortgage with Barnsley Building Society. 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.

Myself and my partner have just had an offer accepted on a house and had an appointment on Tuesday with Leeds Building Society for the mortgage. They advised me that when it comes to appointing a solicitor that unless they are on their approved panel of property lawyers then we will incur an extra fee of £250+. This is is due to the fact that they would then have to appoint a conveyancer to act for them as well as the one we choose to act on our behalf and we are liable for their fees. I have asked Leeds Building Society to send me with a list so I can request quotes only from their approved lawyers but was told they dont have such a list to hand over. What would be the best way of going about this?

You should ask Leeds Building Society what their panel criteria is for a conveyancer.Then ask the solicitor of your choice whether they fit that criteria and have they acted on mortgages for Leeds Building Society in the past. Where the answer to those is yes, then just double check with Leeds Building Society. Alternatively please use our search tool and we may be able to find you a conveyancing practitioner in Barrow upon Humber on the panel for Leeds Building Society.
