About to purchase flat in Kempston. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the TSB conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Kempston property lawyer is on the TSB conveyancing panel.

Have completed on a a terraced house in Kempston , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing the transfer to my name? My Kempston conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be sure the registration is concluded.

As far as conveyancing in Kempston registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in the country. Rather than based on location, timescales can adjust according to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry must send notices to any 3rd parties. At present in the region of 80% of submission are fully addressed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to protracted hold-ups. Historically registration occurs after the buyer is living at the premises therefore 'speed' is not typically an essential issue but where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your lawyers can communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.

I'm buying a new build house in Kempston with a mortgage from Nottingham Building Society. The developers refused to reduce the price so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The sale representative suggested that I not reveal to my solicitor about this side-deal as it would put at risk my mortgage with the lender. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

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.
