I am buying a property in Becontree. 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 your lender is TSB your lawyer must follow the formal instructions set out in Part two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for TSB. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook contains minimum specifications for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancers are required to report to TSB where a lease does not meet these provisions. The specifications relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not limited to Becontree.

Completion of my purchase has taken place for my property in Becontree. Conveyancing was a necessary evil but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. How does one go about formally complaining?

Most banks and building societies have complaints procedures. Your first port of call should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Services Team at head office. Ordinarily complaints to a lender are resolved very quickly. If you feel the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service, South Quay Plaza, 183 Marsh Wall, London E14 9SR with full details of your complaint.

I got the keys to my flat on 10 September and my personal details are still not on the land registry website. Any reason for this? My conveyancing solicitor in Becontree said it should be concluded in a couple of weeks. Are titles in Becontree particularly slow to register?

As far as conveyancing in Becontree is concerned, registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in England and Wales. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can differ subject to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry communicate with any interested persons or bodies. As of today roughly three quarters of submission are fully dealt with within two weeks but some can be subject to extensive delays. Historically registration takes place after the buyer has moved in to the premises thus registration formalities is not always top priority yet where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor could contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.

I'm buying my first flat in Becontree with the aid of help to buy. The developers refused to budge the amount so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The property agent advised me not reveal to my solicitor about this side-deal as it could affect my loan with the lender. 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.

Much to my surprise my conveyancing solicitor in Becontree has informed me that he requires ID documents asserting that this is part of his requirements as a conveyancer on the bank Conveyancing panel. Is this right?

Due to Money Laundering Regulations your conveyancing lawyer is duty bound to confirm positively your identification when entering into a business relationship with you. It is a criminal offence if your lawyer not do this. If you do not provide ID early in the transaction the solicitor must refuse to act for you. It’s unlikely a lawyer will turn you away if you come to the first meeting without relevant ID but you will have to produce it at some point so you might as well bring it with you to the initial meeting so the lawyer can tick the ID verification box and start sorting out the conveyancing straight away. If you are getting a mortgage, your lawyer also has to check ID documents to satisfy the lender. This is not specific to conveyancing in Becontree
