As someone not used to the Burnham On Crouch conveyancing process what is the number one tip you can give me concerning the ownership transfer in Burnham On Crouch

Not many law firms or advisers will tell you this but conveyancing in Burnham On Crouch and elsewhere in England and Wales is often a confrontational experience. Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there exists lots of opportunity for friction between you and others involved in the home moving process. For example, the vendor, estate agent and on occasion a mortgage company. Choosing a solicitor for your conveyancing in Burnham On Crouch is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the SOLE person in the legal process whose interest is to protect your best interests and to keep you safe.

We are witnessing a distinct creep in the "blame" culture- someone has to be at fault for the process being so protracted. You your first instinct should be to trust your conveyancer above the other players when it comes to the legal assignment of property.

I am being told by my conveyancer that breach of easement insurance is necessary on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Burnham On Crouch conveyancing?

I happen to be the single beneficiary of my late mum's estate and I have everything in my name now, including the house in Burnham On Crouch. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in August. I now wish to sell up. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship may be treated the same way as if I'd bought the house in August. Is the property unsalable for six months?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook obliges conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you may be impacted by that. How sensible a view lenders take of it, depend on the bank as this obligation is principally there to pick up on subsales or the quick reselling of properties.

We are getting the release of further funds on our mortgage from Lloyds as we wish to conduct renovations to our property in Burnham On Crouch. Are we obliged to select a local Burnham On Crouch solicitor on the Lloyds conveyancing panel to handle the legals?

If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Burnham On Crouch conveyancing specialists.

I'm buying my first flat in Burnham On Crouch benefiting from help to buy. The builders refused to move on the amount so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead.

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%.
