My wife and I are getting closer to an exchange on a flat in Sandgate and my mum and dad have sent the 10% deposit to my conveyancer. I am now informed that as the deposit has been sent from someone other than me my property lawyer needs to disclose this to my mortgage company. Apparently, in also acting for the lender he must inform them that the balance of the purchase price is coming from anyone other than me. I disclosed to the lender concerning my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really appropriate for him to raise this?
Your lawyer is legally required to check with mortgage company to make sure that they know that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own resources. Your solicitor can only reveal this to your lender if you permit them to, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.

It has been 4 months following my purchase conveyancing in Sandgate concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £180,000. 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 asset 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 am purchasing a new build house in Sandgate with a mortgage from HSBC Bank. The builders would not reduce the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The house builders rep advised me not inform my conveyancer about the side-deal as it would jeopardize my loan with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer 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.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in two weeks back in what was supposed to be a simple, no chain conveyancing. Sandgate is where the house is located. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Sandgate are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Sandgate 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 Sandgate 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 residence.
