My son is in the process of securing a newly built flat in Rossendale with a mortgage from RBS. His solicitor has advised him of a delay in receiving the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. Who needs to receive the form?
The document is intended to provide information to the main parties engaged in the purchase. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the RBS conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the valuer when asked. The developer will be required to start the process by downloading the form and completing it. The form will therefore need to be available for the valuer at the time of his or her site visit. The form should be sent to the RBS conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.

I am helping my mother sell her flat in Rossendale. Will the solicitor commission an energy performance certificate or it is for the seller to see to?

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Rossendale is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Rossendale are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Rossendale you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Rossendale may ascertain 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 property.
I have been recommended by three or four local estate agents in Rossendale to find a property lawyer on your site. What’s the financial inducement for Estate Agents to offer your lawyers over another?
We don’t make any commission for sending work our way. We thought it would be too underhand a fee because a client could think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not receiving any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.
We are 18 days into a freehold purchase having been directed to conveyancers by the selling agent to handle our conveyancing in Rossendale. I am am very dissatisfied with the quality of service. Can you you assist me in finding new conveyancers?
A conveyancer would have to be really bad to suggest replacing them. Has the loan offer been sent? If so you need to inform them of the replacement lawyer and ensure the loan are issued to the new lawyers.
