It is 10 years ago since I purchased my property in Carshalton. Conveyancing solicitors have now been instructed on the sale but I can't locate my deeds. Will this cause complications?
Don’t worry too much. First there is a possibility that the deeds will be retained by the mortgage company or they could be in the possession of the conveyancers who oversaw your purchase. Secondly in all probability the property will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to prove you are the registered owner by your conveyancing solicitors obtaining up to date copy of the land registers. Nearly all conveyancing in Carshalton involves registered property but in the unlikely event that your property is unregistered it is more tricky but is not insurmountable.
We are expecting a mortgage offer soon. The bank mentioned the home loan came with free conveyancing. Is the implication that I have to appoint their panel solicitor as I would much rather use a Carshalton based conveyancing firm?
You should check but the chances are that allocate you one of their panel conveyancers if you take up the "fee-free" deal. Call the mortgage company and explore if they offer you a cash alternative. It is not unheard for a lender to give a £250 cashback as a further option in which case you could put that amount towards the cost for your conveyancing solicitor near Carshalton.

I am buying a new build house in Carshalton with a mortgage from TSB. The developers would not reduce the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The sale representative advised me not reveal to my conveyancer about this side-deal as it will jeopardize my mortgage with the lender. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
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.
I own a leasehold flat in Carshalton. Conveyancing and Bank of Ireland mortgage organised. I have received a letter from someone claiming to own the freehold. It included a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1998. The conveyancing solicitor in Carshalton who acted for me is not around. Do I pay?
The first thing you should do is contact the Land Registry to be sure that the individual purporting to own the freehold is in fact the registered owner of the freehold reversion. You do not need to instruct a Carshalton conveyancing lawyer to do this as it can be done on-line for £3. Rest assured that regardless, even if this is the rightful landlord, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.
