I am buying a newly built duplex in Bootle and my conveyancer is informing me that she is duty bound to the bank to reveal incentives from the seller. I am on a tight deadline to sign contracts and I would rather not delay matters. is my lawyer playing by the book?

You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your conveyancer. 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.

is it true that all Bootle solicitors on the Nationwide conveyancing panel are regulated by the SRA?

As solicitors, in order to be on the Nationwide conveyancing panel they would need to be governed by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. Many lenders do allow licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such practice would be regulated by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.

How can we tell if a Bootle conveyancing solicitor on the Co-operative panel is any good?

When it comes to conveyancing in Bootle 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 which is cheap as chips. We would always advocate that you speak with the solicitor conducting your conveyancing.

I am due to exchange contracts on my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in September 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's mortgage company, Santander are being difficult. The Bootle solicitor who is on the Santander conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Santander are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Santander have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Santander have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Santander may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

I'm purchasing my first flat in Bootle benefiting from help to buy. The developers refused to reduce the price so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The property agent suggested that I not reveal to my lawyer about the deal as it would impact my loan with Accord Mortgages Ltd. Should I keep quiet?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder 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.

Due to the advice of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Bootle before retaining solicitors. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold aspect to the property. My surveyor advised that some mortgage companies may not issue a loan on this type of premises.

It varies from the lender to lender. Santander has different instructions from Birmingham Midshires. Should you wish to telephone us we can check via the relevant lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Bootle. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.
