I sincerely hope you can assist me. My Rufford lawyer is advising me that he is legally obliged toapply for Rufford conveyancing searches asthe firm are on the Nat Westconveyancing panel. These Rufford checks cost a lot of money can this be avoided?

You have limited options available to you. Given that you are taking out a loan with a bank your solicitor has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your conveyancing practitioner would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook conditions .

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am unseasoned as a 1st time buyer of a ground floor flat in Rufford. Do I pick up the keys to the property on the completion date from my lawyer? If so, I will appoint a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Rufford?

There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Conveyancing lawyers for you will arrange to send the purchase money to the vendor’s solicitors, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you should be called to pick up the keys from the selling Agents and move into your new home. Usually this happens early afternoon.

We have agreed to purchase a house in Rufford. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Nottingham have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?

Given that you are obtaining a mortgage with Nottingham your lawyer must follow the formal requirements outlined in Section 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Nottingham. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook contains minimum specifications for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancers are required to report to Nottingham where a lease fails to meet these provisions. The provisions relate to the installation of panels on properties countrywide and is not isolated to Rufford.

Completion of my remortgage has taken place for my property in Rufford. Conveyancing was of an acceptable standard but I would like to complain about the lender. How does one go about formally complaining?

Almost all lenders have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Department at head office. Ordinarily complaints to a lender are sorted out very quickly. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service with full details of your complaint.

I am buying my first flat in Rufford with the aid of help to buy. The builders refused to reduce the price so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The house builders rep suggested that I not to tell my lawyer about this side-deal as it would jeopardize my mortgage with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

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.

Due to the guidance of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Rufford ahead of retaining lawyers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold aspect to the property. Our surveyor has said that some banks tend not grant a mortgage on this type of premises.
