I had intended to instruct a property lawyer in Paignton for our home move. Our financial adviser informed us that our mortgage lenders Yorkshire Building Society won't deal with them. Surely this is unduly restrictive?

Mortgage Companies in the main imposes restrictions either the category or the number of conveyancing practices on their member panel. Typical examples of such restriction(s) being that a law practice must not be a sole practitioner. As well as restricting the profile of firm, some have reduced the number of solicitor practices they use to represent them. Be aware that Yorkshire Building Society have no responsibility for the quality of advice provided by any member of Yorkshire Building Society Conveyancer Panel. Mortgage fraud was a primary driver in the rationalisation of conveyancing panels a few years ago even though there are differing views concerning the level of solicitor involvement in some of that fraud. Data from the Land Registry indicate that thousands of law firms, including some in or near Paignton only carry out a couple conveyances per annum.

Just acquired a terraced house in Paignton , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to record my ownership? My Paignton conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be certain the land registry aspects are concluded.

As far as conveyancing in Paignton is concerned, registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in the country. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can differ according to who lodges the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry need to notify any third persons or bodies. Currently in the region of three quarters of submission are fully dealt with within 12 days but some can be subject to extensive delays. Historically registration takes place once the purchaser has moved in to the premises therefore an expedited registration is not usually top priority but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor could speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.

I'm purchasing my first flat in Paignton with the aid of help to buy. The developers would not reduce the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The sale representative advised me not reveal to my solicitor about the side-deal as it will impact my mortgage 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.

Due to the input of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Paignton ahead of retaining solicitors. I have been told that there is a flying freehold element to the house. The surveyor has said that some lenders may refuse to issue a loan on a flying freehold premises.

It varies from the lender to lender. HSBC has different requirements for example to Halifax. Should you wish to call us we can investigate further with the appropriate mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Paignton. Conveyancing will be smoother if you use a solicitor in Paignton especially if they are accustomed to such properties in Paignton.
