Finally the sale completed on my house in Eltham last July but the buyer keeps whats apping every few hours complaining that his solicitor needs to hear from mine. What are the post completion sale formalities following completion?

Post completion of your disposal your conveyancer is obliged to forward the transfer documentation and all of the paperwork to the buyer’s lawyers. Where appropriate, your lawyer should also send confirmation that the mortgage has been paid off to the buyers lawyers. There is unlikely to be post completion steps unique to conveyancing in Eltham.

My Solicitor in Eltham has never been on on the Leeds Building Society Approved Panel. Can I still retain my family solicitor even though they are not on the Leeds Building Society approved list?

The limited options open to you here include:

I am buying a new build house in Eltham benefiting from help to buy. The developers refused to budge the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The estate agent advised me not disclose to my conveyancer about the deal as it would put at risk my mortgage with Halifax. 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.

Taking into account that I will soon spend hundreds of thousands of pounds on a terraced house in Eltham I would like to have a conversation with the conveyancer about myconveyancing in advance of giving the go ahead to the firm. Can this be arranged?

We could not agree more - it is our preference to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you liaising with the conveyancer due to be carrying out your property ownership legalities in Eltham.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - every client is an important individual, not a matter number. The solicitors that we put you in touch with believe that the figure you are quoted for your conveyancing in Eltham should be the figure that you end up paying.

Is it best to appoint a Eltham conveyancing practitioner who is local to the property I am purchasing? We have a good friend who can deal with the legal work but they are based approximately 350miles drive away.

The benefit of a local Eltham conveyancing practice is that you can drop in to execute paperwork, deliver your identification documents and apply pressure on them where appropriate. They will also have local intelligence which is a benefit. That being said nothing is more important than finding someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If if people you trust instructed your friend and the majority were impressed that must outweigh using an unknown Eltham conveyancing lawyer just because they are local.

I have just placed an offer on a leasehold flat in Eltham and the estate agent that we are dealing with recommended his conveyancer. She quoted a thousand pounds excluding VAT and 3rd party costs. Does this sound expensive?

You should not rely on one quote. One should seek like-for-like quotes for your conveyancing in Eltham. Then select one that you are comfortable with and just as important, is on the approved list of the lender that you have applied for a mortgage from.
