I am buying a brand new apartment in Beddgelert and my conveyancer is informing me that she has to the bank to reveal incentives from the seller. I am on a tight deadline to exchange and my preference is not to prolong deal. Is my lawyer right?
You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your conveyancer. A precondition to being on a lender panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.

I am expecting a OIP from HSBC this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc).

You will need to appoint Beddgelert solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the HSBC conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and HSBC through the process.

Can you offer any advice when it comes to appointing a Beddgelert conveyancing firm to deal with our lease extension?
