As a novice what is the most important number one tip you can impart regarding purchase conveyancing in Plymouth?
Not many law firms or advisers will tell you this but conveyancing in Plymouth and elsewhere in Devon is often a confrontational process. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there exists lots of opportunity for confrontation between you and other parties involved in the ownership transfer. E.g., the vendor, property agent and even potentially your mortgage company. Selecting a solicitor for your conveyancing in Plymouth should not be taken lightly as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the SOLE person in the transaction whose interest is to protect your best interests and to keep you safe.

It has been 2 months following my purchase conveyancing in Plymouth took place. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £160,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
I'm purchasing my first flat in Plymouth with a loan from Norwich and Peterborough Building Society. The sellers refused to reduce the price so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The sale representative told me not reveal to my solicitor about the side-deal as it may put at risk my loan with the lender. 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.
