We are buying a brand new apartment in Great Sankey and my lawyer is informing me that she has to the mortgage company to disclose incentives from the developer. The Estate Agents are hassling me to sign contracts and I have no desire to delay matters. is my lawyer playing by the book?

You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your property lawyer. A precondition to being on a mortgage company panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook requirements. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.

I happen to be the only beneficiary of my late father’s estate and I have everything in my name now, including the house in Great Sankey. The Great Sankey property was put into my name in April. I now wish to sell up. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship could be regarded the same way as though I had purchased the house in April. Will no one buy the property for half a year?

The CML handbook obliges solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you may be affected by that. How practical a view banks take of it, depend on the bank as this provision primarily exists to capture subsales or the quick reselling of properties.

We are not aware of any lender fees to be on their panel, although some do levy an administration charge to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel submission.

We would always recommend that you speak with the solicitor carrying out your conveyancing.

Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to our home are lost. The solicitors who did the conveyancing in Great Sankey 10 years ago no longer exist. What are my options?

My husband and I are novice buyers - agreed a price, yet the selling agent has warned us that the seller will only go ahead if we instruct their recommended conveyancers as they need a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a family conveyancer who is familiar with conveyancing in Great Sankey

We suspect that the seller is unaware of this requirement. Should the seller desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a genuine buyer is counter productive. Contact the sellers directly and explain that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to progress, with finances arranged © you have nothing to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you are going to instruct your own,trusted Great Sankey conveyancing solicitors - as opposed tothose that will earn the estate agent a referral fee or achieve conveyancing thresholds set by HQ.
