My husband and I are buying a brand new duplex in Redruth and my solicitor is telling me that she is duty bound to the lender to reveal incentives from the builder. I am under pressure to sign contracts and I don't want to delay the conveyancing. Is my lawyer right?
You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your solicitor. A precondition to being on a bank panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.
When it comes to lenders such as HSBC, do Redruth lawyers incur a yearly amount to be on the list of approved solicitors?
We are unaware of any lender fees to register on their list of approved firms, although some do charge an administration fee to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel submission.
Is it the case that all Redruth solicitors on the HSBC conveyancing panel are governed by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?
As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the HSBC approved list of solicitors they would need to be regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. The majority of lenders do permit licenced conveyancers on their panel and in such a situation the firms would be regulated by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.
My fiancee and I are in the throws of looking at houses in Redruth and I am now considering a potential offer. Is it premature to have a solicitor in place? I am planning to take a home loan with Barclays.
You should start requesting conveyancing quotes from solicitors ASAP. After you have chosen your lawyer and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and forward their contact information on to the estate agent. Given that you are taking out a mortgage with Barclays, ask your prospective lawyers if they are on the Barclays conveyancing panel otherwise they can't do the mortgage legal work.

Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Redruth. Before diving in I require certainty as to the number of years remaining on the lease.
Assuming the lease is registered - and almost all are in Redruth - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
I invested in buying a garden flat in Redruth, conveyancing was carried out February 2004. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Comparable properties in Redruth with an extended lease are worth £202,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £60 levied per year. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2078
You have 56 years left to run we estimate the premium for your lease extension to range between £29,500 and £34,000 plus legals.
The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs in the absence of comprehensive investigations. You should not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt additional issues that need to be taken into account and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward based on this information before getting professional advice.
