What is the difference between a licensed conveyancer and conveyancing solicitor in Northop
There are two types of lawyers who can execute conveyancing in Northop namely licenced conveyancers or solicitors.

We had selected solicitors locally in Northop on the Clydesdale solicitor panel. They are now charging me a further amount for dealing with the Clydesdale mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by Clydesdale?
Unfortunately, as long as it is in their Terms of Engagement or estimate then yes your conveyancing practitioner may charge a fee for this. This fee is not dictated by Clydesdale but by your Northop property lawyer. Some firms on the Clydesdale panel will charge ’dealing with mortgage’ fee and others do not.
After months of negotiation I have agreed a price on a house in Northop. My mortgage broker suggested a lawyer. I paid an on account payment of £175. Shortly after, the lawyer called me embarrassingly acknowledging that they were not on the Co-operative conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?
You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Co-operative panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.
Me and my brother own a 4 bedroom Edwardian property in Northop. Conveyancing lawyer acted for me and Coventry Building Society. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw a couple of entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold under the exact same address. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??
You should read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Northop and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also enquire as to the situation with the conveyancing lawyer who conducted the conveyancing.
I'm purchasing my first flat in Northop with the aid of help to buy. The developers refused to budge the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The sale representative suggested that I not reveal to my solicitor about this side-deal as it may affect my loan with the bank. Should I keep quiet?.
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.
