I can't travel far from Caldicot. I would like to know the reason why all Caldicot lawyers aren't automatically on all bank panels?

A decade ago most lenders demonstrated an approach to risk which differs from the current day. The FSA in 2010 carried out a thematic review into property fraud which concluded: know the property lawyers on your panel. As a result, mortgage companies have subsequently requiredmore data from law firms about their processes and the individuals employed by them and set certain criteria such as completing a minimum volume of transactions. Many firms have found themselves excluded from lender panels even though they had 100% healthy track record, no complaints and no claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing. Such firms found it impossible satisfy the criteria of amount of transactions the lenders insisted on.

I purchased a semi-detached Edwardian house in Caldicot. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and The Royal Bank of Scotland. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw two entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold with the matching address. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??

You need to assess the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Caldicot and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also enquire as to the situation with the conveyancing practitioner who conducted the conveyancing.

I'm buying a new build house in Caldicot with the aid of help to buy. The builders would not reduce the amount so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The estate agent advised me not inform my conveyancer about this side-deal as it would affect my loan with Alliance & Leicester . Is this normal?.

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.
