I am acquiring a new build flat in Leven and my conveyancer is informing me that she has to the bank to reveal incentives from the builder. I am under pressure to exchange contracts and I don't want to prolong the conveyancing. Is my lawyer right?

The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.

As someone unfamiliar with conveyancing in Leven what’s your top tip you can give me for the ownership transfer in Leven

You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Leven and elsewhere in England and Wales is an adversarial experience. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there exists plenty of opportunity for confrontation between you and other parties involved in the legal transfer of property. For example, the seller, estate agent and even potentially your bank. Appointing a lawyer for your conveyancing in Leven should not be taken lightly as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY person in the transaction whose role it is to act in your legal interests and to protect you.

Every so often a third party with a vested interest will attempt to sway you that you should follow their advice. As an example, the selling agent may claim to be helping by suggesting your solicitor is slow. Or your mortgage broker may tell you to do something that is contrary to your conveyancers advice. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties in the home moving process.
