Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly identified as part of conveyancing in Hanwell?
Covenants that are restrictive in nature can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Hanwell.

I'm purchasing my first flat in Hanwell with a loan from Barnsley Building Society. The builders refused to reduce the amount so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The estate agent told me not disclose to my lawyer about this side-deal as it will put at risk my loan with the lender. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
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 property I have offered on a fortnight ago in what should have been a quick, no chain conveyancing. Hanwell is where the house is located. Is there any advice you can give?
Flying freeholds in Hanwell are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Hanwell you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Hanwell may determine 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 residence.
I'm refinancing my existing house to a BTL mortgage with Skipton Building Society and I will use the rest of the raised equity as a down payment on another house. The location we are looking at is Hanwell. Will your lawyers be able to act for the two mortgage companies and tie in the two deals?
Do use our comparison tool on this site to be sure that the solicitors are approved by both banks. Having checked that they are the solicitor will be able to simultaneously deal with the two deals but you should talk with you conveyancer and make clear your expectations and requirements.
