My husband and I are buying a new build apartment in Blackpool and my solicitor is informing me that she has to the mortgage company to reveal incentives from the developer. I am nearing the developer’s deadline to exchange contracts and my preference is not to prolong matters. is my lawyer playing by the book?

You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your lawyer. A precondition to being on a bank panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.

My uncle passed away last year and as sole heir and executor I was left the house in Blackpool. The house had a relatively small loan remaining of approximately £8000. I want to transfer the title deeds into my name whilst I re-mortgage to Nationwide, pay off the mortgage. Is this possible?

Given you intend to refinance then Nationwide will require that you use a conveyancer on the Nationwide conveyancing panel. Here is link to the Land Registry online guidance around what to do when a property owner dies. This will help you to understand the registration process behind changing the details re the registered title. in your case it would appear that you are effectively purchasing the property from the estate. Your Nationwide conveyancing panel solicitor pays the new mortgage money into the estate, the estate pays off the old mortgage, the charge is released and you become the owner and the Nationwide mortgage is registered as a charge at the Land Registry.

This question may be naive but I am wet behind the ears as a 1st time purchaser of a two bedroom flat in Blackpool. Do I collect the keys to the premises on completion from my solicitor? If this is the case, I will instruct a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Blackpool?

There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Your solicitors will electronically transfer the purchase money to the seller's lawyers, and once they have received this, you will be able to receive the keys from the Estate Agents and start moving into the property. Usually this happens early afternoon.

My offer was accepted on a house in Blackpool on 10/5/2022, valuation was booked 3 days after, received a clean bill of health. Property lawyer appointed, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Kent Reliance and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. Are Kent Reliance entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?

A lender would not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Kent Reliance to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

My fiance and I are purchasing a four room apartmentin Blackpool with a home loan from a bank. We have a lawyer in Blackpool yet our mortgage company advise she’s not on their "panel". It seems we have little choice but to instruct from the our lender panel solicitors or stay with our Blackpool solicitor and pay for one of their panel ones to represent our bank. This seems very unfair; is there anything we can do?

Unfortunately,no. The bank home loan offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the mortgage company's conveyancing panel. in the past, most banks had open panels, including many conveyancing solicitors in Blackpool : 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. A further alternative is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for your lender.
