I have just been advised by my lender that my Little Ilford lawyer is not on the mortgage company Conveyancing panel. What can I do to be sure if this is correct?
Your first step should be to contact your Little Ilford lawyer directly. It is reasonable to expect your lawyer to inform you what has happened. Where they are not on the panel they may be able to suggest a Little Ilford conveyancing firm that is on the approved list of lawyers for your mortgage company.
The vendors of the property we are looking to purchase have instructed a conveyancing firm in Little Ilford who has insisted on a preliminary contract with a deposit of 5k. Are such contracts promoted for Little Ilford conveyancing transactions?
There are two primary concerns with entering into any lock out agreement (also termed a shut-out contract) is that it can distract from making progress with the conveyancing work, so in the absence of it needing little or no negotiation then it could turn out to be a hindrance. It is not promoted amongst Little Ilford conveyancing solicitors as a result. A further concern is the extent of the remedies available - a jilted buyer should not expect to win an injunctive ruling by a court to prohibit the seller completing the sale to a third party, so the only remedy open via the contract will be the recovery of abortive charges and, in rare circumstances, the additional payment of penalties.
Have just purchased a repossessed house at auction in Little Ilford. Conveyancing is necessary. What is next?
Given that you are now exchanged you now have to retain a conveyancing solicitor quickly as you will have a pending a drop dead date to complete the property.

You must hand this to the lawyer working for you as soon as possible. Do make sure that you have funds in place to complete the transaction on the set completion date.

Many areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or impact extensions. You should check these things with a surveyor before you commit yourself to a purchase.
We have a mortgage agreed in principle with Bank of Ireland. Little Ilford conveyancing solicitors were chosen. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Bank of Ireland?
There is no definitive answer here. Have Bank of Ireland conducted the survey? Have you informed Bank of Ireland as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.
I am buying a new build house in Little Ilford with the aid of help to buy. The developers would not move on the price so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead.

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.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on a fortnight ago in what should have been a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Little Ilford is where the house is located. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Little Ilford are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Little Ilford you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Little Ilford may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.
