My husband and I are buying a newly built apartment in Pentwyn and my lawyer is telling me that she has to the lender to reveal incentives from the developer. I am on a tight deadline to exchange contracts and I don't want to delay the conveyancing. is my lawyer playing by the book?

You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your property lawyer. A precondition to being on a lender panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook requirements. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.

Now that you are to all intents and purposes signed on the dotted line you will need to appoint a conveyancing solicitor as a matter of urgency as you will have a pending a drop dead date to complete the property. All auction property will have a corresponding legal set of papers. This will include most,if not all of the documents that your conveyancer will need. Where you are dealing with leasehold property the auction papers may provide a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and associated conveyancing documentation pertinent to a leasehold property. You should pass this on to the conveyancer instructed by you as soon as possible. Do make sure that your finances are in place to complete on the on the contractual date .

We had appointed conveyancers locally in Pentwyn on the Lloyds solicitor panel. They are now charging me a separate fee for handling the Lloyds mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee specified by Lloyds?

As unfair as it may appear, as long as it’s in their Terms of Engagement or estimate then yes your property lawyer can levy a fee for this. The fee is not set by Lloyds but by your Pentwyn property lawyer. Plenty of firms on the Lloyds panel will levy ’dealing with mortgage’ fee and others do not.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in last month in what should have been a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Pentwyn is where the house is located. Is there any advice you can impart?

Flying freeholds in Pentwyn are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Pentwyn you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Pentwyn may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
