As a novice what is the most important number one tip you can give me about purchase conveyancing in Calstock?
You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Calstock and elsewhere in England and Wales is often a confrontational process. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there is lots of room for friction between you and other parties involved in the home moving process. For example, the vendor, selling agent and on occasion a mortgage company. Appointing a law firm for your conveyancing in Calstock is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the SOLE party in the process whose interest is to look after your best interests and to protect you.
There is a definite ongoing adversarial element to conveyancing- someone must be blamed for the process taking so long. You your first instinct should be to trust your conveyancer above all other parties when it comes to the legal transfer of property.
My wife and I are purchasing a apartment in Calstock. I might seem paranoid but how we can trust a conveyancer? On completion day we have to deposit our life savings into their account. What is the protection we have from them run away with our money?

is it true that all Calstock solicitor practices on the Co-operative conveyancing panel are regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?
As solicitors, in order to be on the Co-operative conveyancing panel they would need to be governed by the SRA. The majority of banks do permit licenced conveyancers on their panel and in that case the firms would be governed by the CLC.
We have agreed to purchase a house in Calstock. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Aldermore have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?
As you are obtaining a mortgage with Aldermore your lawyer must comply with the formal instructions contained in Part two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Aldermore. The CML Handbook stipulates minimum provisions for solar panel roof-space leases, and solicitors are required to report to Aldermore where a lease fails to comply with these conditions. The specifications relate to the installation of panels on properties countrywide and is not isolated to Calstock.
It has been 4 months following my purchase conveyancing in Calstock concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £160,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the asset from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
I am buying my first flat in Calstock with the aid of help to buy. The developers would not move on the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The property agent told me not inform my lawyer about this extras as it could put at risk my mortgage with TSB. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
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.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in two weeks back in what was supposed to be a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Calstock is the location of the property. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Calstock are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Calstock you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Calstock may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
