Two weeks ago we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Principality. Nafferton conveyancing solicitors have been selected. How long does it take for Principality to issue the offer to the conveyancing practitioner?

Some lenders take longer than others. Have Principality conducted the survey? Have you informed Principality as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Principality conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.

I am buying a property in Nafferton. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Clydesdale have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?

As you are obtaining a mortgage with Clydesdale your lawyer must follow the conveyancing instructions set out in Section 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Clydesdale. The CML Handbook sets out minimum provisions for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancers are required to report to Clydesdale where a lease fails to meet these conditions. The specifications relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not limited to Nafferton.

Having digested plenty of house buying guides, I note that it is considered advisable to get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Nafferton solicitor - who is on the UBS conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. Is that normal?

UBS will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually UBS will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Nafferton surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.

I have recentlyfound out that Action Conveyancing have closed. They conducted my conveyancing in Nafferton for a purchase of a leasehold flat 9 months ago. How can I establish that my home is not still registered in the name of the former proprietor?

The quickest method to check if the premises is in your name, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Nafferton conveyancing specialists.

I am purchasing a new build house in Nafferton with the aid of help to buy. The builders would not budge the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The house builders rep suggested that I not to tell my conveyancer about this side-deal as it may affect my mortgage with the bank. Is this normal?.

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.

I am downsizing from my home. My former conveyancers closed down. It would be helpful to have a recommendation of a conveyancing firm. Im based in Nafferton if that affects matters.
