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%.

My work colleague mentioned that before choosing a conveyancing solicitors they must be approved by your lender. I am first time buyer with but I have an AIP from Virgin Money and I already have a local conveyancing lawyer in Romford at the ready. Does Virgin Money insist on an approved solicitor to be selected? Does a list of panel conveyancers even exist for my conveyancing in Romford?

You should instruct a solicitor that is on the Virgin Money panel. The simplest thing to do is telephone your chosen Romford conveyancing lawyer and ask if they are on the Virgin Money panel. If they are not approved you have a couple of options available to you here:

  • Proceed with your preferred Romford conveyancer but Virgin Money will undoubtedly retain a property lawyer from their approved list. This will result in additional cost together with probable delay.
  • Appoint a fresh solicitor to conduct the conveyancing, obviously checking they are on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel.
  • Convince your property lawyer to pull out all the stops to join the Virgin Money conveyancing panel.
