I am in a contract race with another buyer for a property in Kings Heath. What can I do to expedite matters?
In the event that the seller is applying pressure for your conveyancing it is highly recommended that your lawyer is familiar with the location as they will benefit local relationships and insight. It is possible that they could have transacted previousproperties in the same street. You would be best advised to use a Kings Heath conveyancing firm. In addition, make sure that the lawyer is on the member panel. It is said that 18% of Kings Heath conveyancing transactions are held up or jeopardised after discovering a buyer’s conveyancer was not on their banks member panel. In many cases this discovery resulted in the legal process being frustrated by an average of three weeks. It is believed that this issue affects approximately one hundred thousand home moves annually. Many Kings Heath conveyancing firms can not act for certain lenders so do check at the outset.
We are expecting a mortgage offer soon. The bank mentioned the home loan came with free conveyancing. Does this mean I have to instruct their panel solicitor as I would prefer to use a specialised conveyancing solicitor in Kings Heath?
Do check but the the likelihood is that give you one of their panel lawyers if you accept the "fee-free" offer. Call the bank and see if they allow a cash alternative. It is not unheard for a lender to give a £250 cashback as an alternative in which case that money can go towards the cost for your conveyancing solicitor near Kings Heath.
I am purchasing my first flat in Kings Heath benefiting from help to buy. The sellers refused to move on the amount so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The estate agent suggested that I not disclose to my conveyancer about the deal as it would put at risk 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've recently bought a leasehold property in Kings Heath. Do I have any liability for service charges relating to a period prior to completion of my purchase?
Where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous lessee and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. However, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. It is an essential part of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to ensure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.
If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).
