Our son is purchasing a newly built flat in Bayswater with a mortgage from RBS. His conveyancer has advised him of a delay in completing the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. This document is news to me - what is it and who needs sight of it?
The document is intended to provide information to the main parties engaged in the transaction. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the RBS conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the surveyor when asked. The developer will be required to start the process by downloading the form and completing it. The form will therefore need to be available for the valuer at the time of his or her site visit. The form should be sent to the RBS conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.
Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to our home can not be found. The solicitors who did the conveyancing in Bayswater 5 years ago no longer exist. Will I be able to sell the house?
As long as the title is registered the details of your ownership will be documented by the Land Registry with a Title Number. It is possible to conduct a search at the Land Registry, identify your house and get up to date copies of the property title for less than a fiver. Where the title is Leasehold then the Land Registry will usually retain a certified duplicate of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be ordered for a small fee.
Is there anything unique about your site and other online quote calculators for conveyancing in Bayswater?

We're first time buyers - agreed a price, but the estate agent told us that the vendor will only proceed if we appoint their preferred lawyers as they need a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a high street conveyancer with experience of conveyancing in Bayswater
We suspect that the seller is unaware of this request. Should the seller desire ‘a quick sale', turning down a genuine buyer is likely to cause more damage than good. Speak to the vendors direct and make the point that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you are chain free (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you intend to use your preferred Bayswater conveyancing firm - not the ones that will give the negotiator at the agency a kickback or meet his conveyancing figures set by corporate headquarters.
I only have 62 years left on my flat in Bayswater. I now wish to get lease extension but my freeholder is can not be found. What options are available to me?
On the basis that you meet the appropriate requirements, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can submit an application to the County Court for for permission to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will mean that your lease can be granted an extra 90 years by the Court. You will be obliged to demonstrate that you have done all that could be expected to locate the landlord. In some cases an enquiry agent may be helpful to conduct investigations and to produce an expert document to be accepted by the court as proof that the landlord can not be located. It is wise to seek advice from a conveyancer both on proving the landlord’s disappearance and the application to the County Court overseeing Bayswater.
After years of correspondence we simply can't agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Bayswater. Does the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal have jurisdiction to calculate the appropriate figures?
You certainly can. We can put you in touch with a Bayswater conveyancing firm who can help.

My fiance and I are planning to purchase a four bedroom apartmentin Bayswater with a mortgage from a lender. We have selected a lawyer in Bayswater however our bank inform us now that he's not on their "panel". It seems we have little choice but to instruct from the our mortgage company panel solicitors or stay with our Bayswater solicitor and pay for one of their panel ones to represent our mortgage company. We feel as though this is unjust; is there anything we can do?
No, not really. The mortgage company home loan offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that solicitors will on the mortgage company's conveyancing panel. in the past, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels, including almost all conveyancing solicitors in Bayswater : a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for your mortgage company.
