The Law Society's Conveyancing Quality Scheme is the recognised quality mark for legal experts in buying or selling property, trusted by some of the UK's major mortgage companies. In 2011-12 the Conveyancing Quality Scheme was officially recognised by the Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML). CQS is not a scheme offered by the Council of Licensed Conveyancing.

Have purchased a a terraced house in Sandown , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to record my ownership? My Sandown conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to check the registration is addressed.

There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Sandown registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can vary subject to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry must send notices to any third parties. At present roughly 80% of submission are completed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to protracted delays. Registration takes place after the new owner has moved in to the premises thus an expedited registration is not always top priority yet where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor should contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.

I'm purchasing a new build house in Sandown with a loan from The Mortgage Works. The builders refused to budge the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of extras instead. The sale representative suggested that I not to tell my lawyer about the extras as it would impact 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 have been on the look out for a flat up to £245,000 and found one near me in Sandown I like with open areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 52 years on the lease. There is not much else in Sandown for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be problematic. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.
