Just contacted my conveyancing lawyer in Great Barford who conducted the legals two years ago requesting a conveyancing estimate based on an identical type of home move (a leasehold property and a freehold premises) of almost identical values with a loan from Skipton Building Society. It looks as though am now being charged twice the amount. Should I look for a cheaper internet conveyancer?

The estimate does seem a little overpriced. If you you were to look around you could get the conveyancing a bit cheaper by perhaps £100 plus VAT. On the other hand, providing that you were happy with the conveyancing the firm gave you mightlive to regret opting for an an unknown conveyancer.

My solicitor says that he is duty bound to ensure that the bank is happy with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my solicitor’s course or action legitimate?

Your conveyancing practitioner must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook provisions which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for you.

I have a decision in principle. The bank mentioned the loan came with free conveyancing. Does this mean I have to instruct their panel conveyancer as I would prefer to instruct a specialised conveyancing solicitor in Great Barford?

Do check but the chances are that give you one of their panel solicitors where you take up the "fee-free" incentive. Call the lender and see if they make available a monetary alternative. Some mortgage companies have previously offered a £250 cashback as an alternative in which case that money can go towards the cost for your conveyancing solicitor in Great Barford.

I'm buying my first flat in Great Barford benefiting from help to buy. The sellers would not move on the amount so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The sale representative told me not to tell my lawyer about this side-deal as it could put at risk 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 element on a house I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Great Barford is where the house is located. Can you offer any opinion?

Flying freeholds in Great Barford are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses.

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.

I need to review costs for conveyancing in Great Barford from three property lawyer and appoint one. Should I instruct them to sit tight until I I have an offer accepted on a house.
