I happen to be the only recipient of my late mum's will and I have everything in my name alone, including the my former home in Dagenham. The Dagenham property was put into my name in December. I now wish to sell up. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship will be treated the same way as though I had purchased the property in December. Will no one buy the property for half a year?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook obliges conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you could be caught by that. Most lenders would take a practical view as this requirement is principally there to identify the purchase and immediately sell or the flipping of property.

Does a directory service exist listing Skipton panel solicitors in Dagenham on the Building Society Association’s Website?

Unfortunately not yet. There is no such directory service on the CML or Building Society Association websites. A small selection of mortgage companies make their panel listings open the public over the internet. If you are looking for a Dagenham lawyer on the Skipton please make the most of our tool.

I recently had an offer agreed on an apartment in Dagenham. My financial adviser pressured me to appoint their conveyancing practitioner. I paid an upfront payment of £175. Shortly after, the conveyancing practitioner called me embarrassingly acknowledging that they were not on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?

You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Yorkshire BS panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

I bought my apartment on 6 May and my personal details are still not on the land registry website. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in Dagenham expressed confidence that it will be concluded in a couple of weeks. Are titles in Dagenham particularly slow to register?

As far as conveyancing in Dagenham registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of England and Wales. Rather than based on location, timescales can adjust subject to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry have to notify any interested parties. Currently approximately 80% of submission are fully addressed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to longer hold-ups. Historically registration takes place after the new owner has moved in to the premises so an expedited registration is not usually an essential issue yet where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer must contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.

I'm purchasing my first flat in Dagenham with the aid of help to buy. The sellers would not move on the price so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The property agent suggested that I not reveal to my conveyancer about the deal as it could adversely affect my loan with the bank. Is this normal?.

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 am thinking of appointing a conveyancing solicitor in Dagenham for my home move. Is it possible to review a firm’s complaints history with the legal regulator?
