As someone unfamiliar with conveyancing in Liskeard what is the number one tip you can give me for the ownership transfer in Liskeard

You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Liskeard or throughout Cornwall is often a confrontational experience. Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there exists plenty of opportunity for friction between you and others involved in the home moving process. For example, the seller, property agent and sometimes a bank. Selecting a lawyer for your conveyancing in Liskeard an important selection as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the SOLE party in the process whose interest is to look after your best interests and to protect you.

We are selling our house in Liskeard and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being built on contaminated land. A local conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers used a web based conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Liskeard. We have lived in Liskeard for many years we know that this is a non issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to obtain clarification that there is no issue.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing firm already. What do they say? You should enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same sickness)

It has been three months following my purchase conveyancing in Liskeard concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £180,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the property from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

I'm buying my first flat in Liskeard with a mortgage from Virgin Money. The builders refused to move on the price so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The house builders rep suggested that I not disclose to my conveyancer about this deal as it may impact my loan with Virgin Money. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

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.
