We had appointed conveyancing lawyers located in Crewe on the UBS solicitor panel. They are now charging me an additional amount for dealing with the UBS mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee set by UBS?

I'm purchasing a new build house in Crewe with a loan from Leeds Building Society. The builders refused to reduce the price so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The estate agent advised me not inform my solicitor about the side-deal as it could adversely affect my loan 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've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a quick, no chain conveyancing. Crewe is where the house is located. Can you offer any assistance?

Flying freeholds in Crewe are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Crewe you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Crewe may determine 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.

Should I be wary by brokers that I am dealing with are suggesting a national conveyancing firm as opposed to a High Street Crewe conveyancing company?

As is the case with many service providers, often recommendations from relatives can be worth their weight in gold. Nevertheless there are numerous people with a vested interest in a conveyancing matter; estate agents, financial adviser and lenders might all put forward solicitors to choose. Sometimes these lawyers might be known to one of the organisations as one of the best in their field, but occasionally there behind the scenes commercial relationship behind the endorsement. You are at liberty to select your preferred conveyancer. You need to be aware that most mortgage providers specify a panel list of lawyers you must use for the lender related work in your house move.

I am using a search engine for the phrase cheap conveyancing in Crewe it brings up many conveyancerslocally. How do I determine which is the suitable conveyancer for purchase transaction?

The best method of choosing the right conveyancer is via personal recommendation, so enquire of friends and family who have bought a property in Crewe or the reputable estate agent or financial adviser. Costs for conveyancing in Crewe vary, so it's sensible to secure at least three quotes from varying types of law firms. Dont forget to clarify what costs in the quote includes.
