We are intending to purchase a 2 bedroom apartment in Dollis Hill with a mortgage. We like our Dollis Hill lawyer, however the mortgage company says he's not on their "panel". We have to appoint one of the bank panel conveyancing practices or keep our Dollis Hill property lawyer and pay for one of their panel ones to represent them. This seems very unfair; is there anything we can do?
Unfortunately,no. The mortgage offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the lender’s conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your Dollis Hill conveyancing lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.
Why is leasehold purchase conveyancing in Dollis Hill is more expensive?

This is due to the additional work necessary in liaising with the landlord and management company to obtain evidence concerning whether the rent and maintenance fee have been discharged and whether there are any large sums expected to be spent in the near future on repairs or maintenance of the building.
I am buying my first flat in Dollis Hill with a loan from Platform Home Loans Ltd. The developers refused to reduce the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The sale representative advised me not reveal to my solicitor about the extras as it could jeopardize 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.
