My fiancee and I are spending time looking at houses in Frenchay and I am about to put in an offer. Should I already have a conveyancing practitioner appointed at this stage? I will be getting a home loan with Leeds Building Society.

It would be wise to start your search sooner rather than later. Once you decide who you want to use and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their details on to the selling agent. Given that you are obtaining a mortgage with Leeds Building Society, ask your prospective lawyers if they are on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel otherwise they can't do the mortgage legal work.

I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with RBS. I assume I don't need a Frenchay solicitor on the RBS panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?

If you have finished paying off your RBS mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the RBS mortgage from the register. RBS, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where RBS has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. RBS has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your RBS mortgage has been paid off.

It is a large document of more than thirty pages, listing and setting out significant information about Frenchay around the property and the people living there. It incorporates an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the local Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the demographics of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average Property Price, Crime details, Frenchay Education with maps and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful data about Frenchay.

I am buying my first flat in Frenchay with a mortgage from Barnsley Building Society. The developers would not budge the price so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The estate agent advised me not inform my lawyer about this side-deal as it could jeopardize my mortgage with Barnsley Building Society. 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.

Due to the encouragement of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Frenchay prior to appointing solicitors. I have been told that there is a flying freehold overhang to the property. Our surveyor has said that some banks may not grant a loan on a flying freehold property.

It depends who your proposed lender is. Lloyds has different instructions from Birmingham Midshires. If you e-mail us we can investigate further via the relevant bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Frenchay. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Frenchay to see if the conveyancing costs will increase in light of this.
