As someone unfamiliar with the Kegworth conveyancing process what’s your top tip you can give me for the legal transfer of property in Kegworth
You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Kegworth and elsewhere in England and Wales is often a confrontational process. Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there exists an abundance of opportunity for confrontation between you and others involved in the transaction. For example, the vendor, selling agent and on occasion your lender. Choosing a solicitor for your conveyancing in Kegworth should not be taken lightly as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONE party in the legal process whose role it is to look after your legal interests and to keep you safe.
Sometimes a third party with a vested interest may attempt to persuade you that it is in your interests to do things their way. For instance, the estate agent may claim to be helping by suggesting your conveyancer is dragging his heels. Or your mortgage broker may advise you to do something that is against your solicitors guidance. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties in the home moving process.

I am purchasing a new build house in Kegworth with a loan from Nottingham Building Society. The developers refused to move on the price so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The estate agent told me not inform my conveyancer about this deal as it would adversely affect my mortgage with the bank. Should I keep quiet?.
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.
