This question may be naive but I am wet behind the ears as a 1st time purchaser of a garden flat in Eaglescliffe. Do I receive the keys to the house on completion from my lawyer? If so, I will instruct a local conveyancing solicitor in Eaglescliffe?
There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Your solicitors will transfer the completion advance to the seller's lawyers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you will be called to collect the keys from the selling Agents and start moving into the property. Usually this occurs early afternoon.

After weeks of negotiation I have agreed a price on an apartment in Eaglescliffe. My financial adviser recommended their conveyancers. I paid an upfront payment of £175. A couple of days later, the solicitor called me embarrassingly acknowledging that they were not on the Nationwide 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 Nationwide 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'm buying a new build house in Eaglescliffe with a mortgage from Britannia. The builders would not budge the price so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The house builders rep suggested that I not to tell my conveyancer about the deal as it may affect my loan with the bank. Should I keep quiet?.
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.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Eaglescliffe is where the house is located. Is there any guidance you can impart?
Flying freeholds in Eaglescliffe are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Eaglescliffe you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Eaglescliffe 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 residence.
My solicitors in Eaglescliffe have advised me that no longer have my conveyancing file. To assist with my purchase I took out a mortgage with the mortgage company. Is it case that being on the mortgage company conveyancing panel they need to have retained the file for a prescribed period?
Different lenders have different requirements but many of the Terms and Conditions of Conveyancing Panel Appointment require the file to be held for a period of 6 years. That being said we have not seen a copy of the lender Conveyancing Panel Terms. It might be worth you contacting the bank directly.
