I am due to exchange on the purchase of a house in Matlock but as a result of wreckage from the recent storms I have was able negotiate compensation from the current proprietors of £3k in the form of a deduction in the price. I had intended this to be dealt with as part of amending the contract however Nottingham will not agree to this. Why were they approached?
Your property lawyer being on the Nottingham approved list is obliged to advise Nottingham of any variations to the sale price. If you were to refuse your lawyer to disclose the price change to Nottingham then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Nottingham and you would have to appoint a new conveyancing practitioner for your conveyancing in Matlock.

we are a couple who are buying a newbuild flat in Matlock with a residential mortgage from Leeds Building Society.We would like to retain our Matlock conveyancing lawyer but Leeds Building Society advised that he's not on their "panel". It seems we have no choice but to instruct a Leeds Building Society panel solicitor or keep our high street solicitor and pay for a Leeds Building Society panel lawyer to act for them. We feel as though this is unjust; is there anything we can do?
Unfortunately,no. The loan issued to you is subject to its terms and conditions, a common one being that conveyancers needs to be on the Leeds Building Society approved list. Until recently, most mortgage companies had large numbers of solicitors on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Leeds Building Society
I am buying my first flat in Matlock benefiting from help to buy. The developers refused to move on the price so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The property agent suggested that I not disclose to my lawyer about the deal as it could affect my loan with Aldermore. 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.
How can the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 affect my commercial offices in Matlock and how can your lawyers assist?
The particular law that you refer to provides protection to commercial leaseholders, giving them the dueness to make a request to court for a continuation of occupancy when the lease comes to an end. There are certain specified grounds where a landlord can refuse a lease renewal and the rules are complex. Fees are different for commercial conveyancing.

Can you suggest a trustworthy Matlock conveyancer for buying a flat? A relative suggested one but their estimate was £895 for a 250k property. That seems high. The lender will be Barclays.
