We're in Lynmouth, FTBs purchasing with a mortgage (lender is Kent Reliance , and our lawyer is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?

The fact that your lawyer is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not.

I am buying a new build house in Lynmouth with a mortgage from Virgin Money. The builders would not reduce the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of extras instead. The sale representative suggested that I not inform my lawyer about this deal as it may affect my mortgage with the bank. Should I keep quiet?.

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.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in last month in what should have been a quick, no chain conveyancing. Lynmouth is where the house is located. Can you offer any opinion?

Flying freeholds in Lynmouth are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Lynmouth you would need to get your solicitor to go 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 Lynmouth may ascertain 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.

My offer on semi in Lynmouth was accepted, but there is a chain. The owners have offered on on an apartment, but it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other flats in the pipeline. I have selected a local conveyancing lawyer in Lynmouth. What should be my next step? At what point should I apply for the mortgage with Barclays?

It is usual to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses too early (home loan application is approx one thousand pounds, then survey, Lynmouth conveyancing search charges, etc). First, you must ensure that your property lawyer is on the Barclays conveyancing panel. Concerning the subsequent phase this very much depends on the specifics of your case, desire for this property and on the state of the market. In a hot market many purchasers would apply for a home loan with Barclays and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they request their property lawyer to move forward with searches.
