Our offer on a semi in Earley has been agreed to, the vendors do nevertheless have a tied purchase. The vendors have put an offer on a property, but it’s not yet tied up, and have viewings of other apartments booked. I have selected a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Earley. What do I do now? At what stage do I apply for the mortgage with Nottingham?
It is usual to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses prematurely (mortgage application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then survey, Earley conveyancing search costs, etc). The first thing to do is check that your solicitor is on the Nottingham approved list. Concerning the next phase this very much depends on the uniqueness of your case, attraction to the property and on the state of the market. During a hot market some buyers will apply for the mortgage with Nottingham and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they ask their conveyancer to press on with searches.
We are selling our property in Earley and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being constructed on contaminated land. Any high street Earley conveyancer would know that there is no such problem.

Do we contact our local Authority to get clarification that the buyers are looking for.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You need to check with your lawyer before you do anything.

Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to my property can not be found. The lawyers who conducted the conveyancing in Earley 5 years ago have long since closed. What do I do?
As long as you have a registered title the details of your ownership will be retained by HMLR with a Title Number. It is easy to perform a search at the Land Registry, identify your house and obtain up to date copies of the Registered Entries for a small fee. Where the property is Leasehold then the Land Registry will also normally retain a file duplicate of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be obtained for £20 inclusive of VAT.
I'm purchasing my first flat in Earley with the aid of help to buy. The developers refused to reduce the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The estate agent told me not inform my conveyancer about the side-deal as it could affect my mortgage with HSBC Bank. Is this normal?.
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.
The conveyancing solicitors conducting our conveyancing in Earley has sent documents to review that show the land is unregistered with epitome documents. Surely all properties in Earley should be registered?
It is a rare occurrence indeed to find property in Earley not to be registered. An 'epitome' is basically a dossier of photocopies of documents affecting an unregistered title. Many Earley conveyancing solicitors should be familiar with this type of conveyancing but in the event that uncertainty exists the conventional proposition these days is for the current owners to undertake the registration formalities first and thereafter sell - this can though naturally cause a significant delay.
