Our god-son is purchasing a new build apartment in Beacontree Heath with a home loan from Principality. His solicitor has said that there is a delay in receiving 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 involved in the purchase. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the Principality conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the valuer when requested. 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 Principality conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.

Your conveyancer should review the registered title as conveyancing in Beacontree Heath will sometimes identify restrictions in the title deeds which restrict certain alterations or necessitated the consent of another owner. Many additions need local authority planning consent and approval under the building regulations. Many areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or affect extensions. You should check these issues with a surveyor before you commit yourself to a purchase.
Can I be sure that the Beacontree Heath conveyancing solicitor on the Coventry BS panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Beacontree Heath obtaining recommendations is a sensible starting point. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one advertising the lowest fees. We would always advocate that you speak with the solicitor carrying out your conveyancing.
I am buying a property in Beacontree Heath. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender TSB be concerned?
Given that you are obtaining a mortgage with TSB your lawyer must follow the formal instructions set out in Part 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for TSB. The CML Handbook stipulates minimum provisions for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancing practitioners are required to report to TSB where a lease fails to meet these conditions. The conditions relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not restricted to Beacontree Heath.
My wife and I are selling our property in Beacontree Heath and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being constructed on contaminated land. A local lawyer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers used an online conveyancing practice rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Beacontree Heath. We have lived in Beacontree Heath for many years we know of no issue. Do we contact our local Authority to seek confirmation need.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer already. 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 life insurance to cover that same illness)
