Our god-son is purchasing a house that has just been built in Callington with a mortgage from Aldermore. His conveyancer has said that there is a delay in completing the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. This document is news to me - what is it and who needs sight of it?

The document is intended to provide information to the main parties involved in the transaction. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the Aldermore conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the valuer when asked. The developer will be required to start the process by downloading the form and completing it. The form will therefore need to be available for the valuer at the time of his or her site visit. The form should be sent to the Aldermore conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.

I purchased a 4 bedroom Edwardian house in Callington. Conveyancing lawyer represented me and Britannia. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw two entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold under the matching property. Is it worth asking Britannia to clarify?

You should review 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 owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Callington and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also check the situation with your conveyancing lawyer who conducted the conveyancing.

How does conveyancing in Callington differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Callington come to us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is built. This is because house builders in Callington usually acquire the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Callington or who has acted in the same development.

I am a fortnight into a leasehold purchase having been referred to a firm by the selling agent to perform conveyancing in Callington. We are not happy. Can you help me find new solicitors?

They would have to be very poor in order to consider changing them. Has your loan offer been generated? In the event that it has you must inform them of the new conveyancer and have the mortgage documents are re-sent. Your new solicitor ideally needs to be on the mortgage company panel to avoid escalating fees and delays. That should be your starting point. The search tool should assist you in finding a bank approved solicitor for your conveyancing in Callington
