It is a dozen years since I acquired my house in Fulwell. Conveyancing lawyers have just been appointed on the sale but I am unable to track down my title documents. Is this a problem?
Don’t worry too much. First the deeds may be kept by the lender or they may stored with the conveyancers who oversaw the purchase. Secondly the chances are that the title will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you are the registered owner by your conveyancing lawyers obtaining current official copies of the land registers. Almost all conveyancing in Fulwell relates to registered property but in the unlikely event that your property is not registered it adds to the complexity but is resolvable.

What is your number one tip for choosing a conveyancing solicitor in Fulwell
Do not opt for the cheapest Fulwell conveyancing costs illustration. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need.

I am due to exchange contracts on my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in January 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, Clydesdale are being problematic. The Fulwell solicitor who is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Clydesdale are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Clydesdale have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Clydesdale have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Clydesdale may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
I am buying my first flat in Fulwell with the aid of help to buy. The developers refused to budge the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The estate agent advised me not inform my lawyer about the side-deal as it would jeopardize my mortgage with the lender. 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.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Fulwell is the location of the property. Can you offer any guidance?
Flying freeholds in Fulwell are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Fulwell you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Fulwell may decide 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 property.
I today discovered that one of the directors of the law firm handling the purchase conveyancing in Fulwell is an aunty of the seller. Is this acceptable?
Provided there is no conflict of interest this is permitted. If you are needing mortgage finance then the bank may have a say as many banks have specific instructions on this. For example for Skipton Building Society as of 3/8/2021, the requirements read as follows :
