In a situation where the seller is applying pressure to complete we would recommend that your lawyer is familiar with the location as they will have local contacts and know-how. It is possible that they may have conducted otherhouses in the same neighbourhood. Therefore consider using a Cumbria conveyancing lawyer.

I have todaybecome aware that Wolstenholmes have closed. They carried out my conveyancing in Cumbria for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 18 months ago. How can I be sure that my home is not still registered in the name of the former proprietor?

The easiest method to see if the premises is in your name, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Cumbria conveyancing specialists.

I'm buying a new build house in Cumbria benefiting from help to buy. The developers would not move on the amount so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The property agent told me not inform my solicitor about the side-deal as it could affect my loan with the lender. Should I keep quiet?.

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.
