It is a dozen years since I acquired my home in Marks Gate. Conveyancing solicitors have recently been appointed on the sale but I can't locate the deeds. Is this a problem?
Don’t worry too much. Firstly the deeds may be with the lender or they could stored with the lawyers who oversaw your purchase. Secondly the chances are that the property will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to prove you own the property by your conveyancing solicitors obtaining up to date copy of the land registers. Most conveyancing in Marks Gate relates to registered property but in the unlikely event that your property is not registered it is more of a problem but is not insurmountable.
I have been told that property searches are the number one reason for obstruction in Marks Gate conveyancing transactions. Is there any truth in this?

I am purchasing a new build house in Marks Gate with a loan from Platform Home Loans Ltd. The developers would not reduce the price so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The property agent suggested that I not inform my conveyancer about the deal as it could adversely affect my mortgage with Platform Home Loans Ltd. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
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.
