My son-in-law is purchasing a new build apartment in Meliden with a mortgage from Skipton. His conveyancer has advised him of a delay in receiving the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. What is this document - I have never come across this before?
The document is intended to provide information to the main parties involved in the purchase. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the Skipton conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the surveyor when asked. The developer will be required to start the process by downloading the form and completing it. The form will therefore need to be available for the valuer at the time of his or her site visit. The form should be sent to the Skipton conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.
My wife and I are buying a house in Meliden. It might be a silly question but how we can trust a conveyancer? At some point we will need to deposit funds into their account. What is the protection we have from them run away with our monies?
Be assured that all money in a Solicitors client account is 100% safe, and even if your Solicitor ran off with it, the Law Society would reimburse you fully.
Can you point me to a directory of Coventry BS panel solicitors in Meliden on the Building Society Association’s Website?
Unfortunately not yet. There is no such facility on the CML or Building Society Association sites. A small selection of lenders make their panel listings available online. If you are seeking to appoint a Meliden conveyancing practitioner on the Coventry BS please use our facility.
I am due to exchange contracts on my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in March 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s mortgage company, TSB are being difficult. The Meliden solicitor who is on the TSB conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but TSB are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do TSB have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that TSB have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why TSB may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
Should commercial conveyancing searches reveal impending roadworks that may impact a commercial site in Meliden?
Its becoming the norm that commercial conveyancing solicitors in Meliden will conduct a SiteSolutions Highways report as it reduces the time that conveyancers invest in looking into accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in Meliden. The search result sets out definitive data on the adoption status of roads, footpaths and verges, as well as the implication of traffic schemes and the rights of way surrounding a commercial development sites in Meliden.
For every commercial conveyancing transaction in Meliden it is crucial to investigate the adoption status of roads surrounding a site.

These searches are not ordered for domestic conveyancing in Meliden.

My father has urged me to appoint his lawyers for conveyancing in Meliden. Do I take his advice?

My conveyancers in Meliden have advised me that no longer have my conveyancing file. To assist with my purchase I took out a mortgage with the mortgage company. Is it case that being on the mortgage company conveyancing panel they need to have retained the file for a number of years?
Different lenders have different requirements but many of the Terms and Conditions of Conveyancing Panel Appointment require the file to be held for a period of 6 years. That being said we have not seen a copy of the bank Conveyancing Panel Terms. It might be worth you contacting the lender directly.
