My fiancee and I are purchasing our first house. The property lawyer has calledto enquire if we would like to order extra conveyancing searches. We are really unsure what's necessary for conveyancing in Hilsea

The type of Hilsea conveyancing searches should be dictated entirely on the premises, the location, the likelihood of any of these risks, your knowledge of the locality and risks, your overall approach to risk.

My husband and I are purchasing a newbuild apartment in Hilsea with a mortgage from Virgin Money.We would like to retain our Hilsea conveyancing solicitor but Virgin Money advised that he's not listed on their approved list of firms. It seems we have no choice but to instruct a Virgin Money panel solicitor or retain our local solicitor and pay for one of their panel ones to represent them. We feel as though this is unjust; Can we not simply insist that Virgin Money use our lawyer?

Unfortunately,no. The mortgage offered to you contains terms and conditions, a common one being that lawyers must be on the Virgin Money approved list. Until recently, most mortgage companies had large numbers of solicitors on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Virgin Money

Just bought a detached house in Hilsea , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing my title? My Hilsea conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to be sure that my purchase is registered.

As far as conveyancing in Hilsea is concerned, registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of England and Wales. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can vary according to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry need to notify any interested parties. As of today approximately three quarters of submission are fully dealt with in less than three weeks but some can be subject to longer delays. Registration occurs after the buyer is living at the property so registration formalities is not usually primary concern yet where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers should speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.

I'm purchasing a new build house in Hilsea with a loan from Platform Home Loans Ltd. The sellers would not budge the price so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The estate agent advised me not to tell my lawyer about this extras as it could jeopardize my loan with the bank. 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.

I decided to have a survey carried out on a property in Hilsea ahead of instructing conveyancers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold element to the property. The surveyor has said that some lenders may refuse to issue a mortgage on this type of home.

It varies from the lender to lender. Bank of Scotland has different instructions for example to Halifax. If you e-mail us we can investigate further via the relevant mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Hilsea. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Hilsea to see if the conveyancing costs will increase in light of this.
