I can't travel far from Shotton. What is the rationale as to why all Shotton conveyancing practitioners aren't included on all mortgage company panels?
Lenders point to the fact that solicitor-led fraud is thought to be responsible for millions of pounds of fraud every year.The removal of law firms off of lender panels started with the rise in mortgage fraud, which prompted a thematic review by the FSA in 2011. Its conclusions included recommendations for lenders to review their conveyancing panels, which triggered a major policy change in the sector. This resulted in mortgage companies removing less reputable firms off their official list of approved conveyancers .
We note that you have a post code search directory listing law firms on the HSBC conveyancing panel. Do firms pay you a commission if I instruct them for our own conveyancing in Shotton?
We are a listing service only for law firms wishing to communicate if they are on the HSBC conveyancing panel or other lender panels. We do not charge referral fees to any conveyancer that you subsequently appoint for your conveyancing in Shotton.

I am purchasing a new build house in Shotton benefiting from help to buy. The developers refused to move on the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The sale representative suggested that I not reveal to my conveyancer about this extras as it could put at risk my mortgage with Virgin Money. Is this normal?.
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.
I opted to have a survey carried out on a property in Shotton prior to appointing lawyers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. Our surveyor has said that some banks will refuse to grant a loan on this type of home.

If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Shotton. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Shotton to see if the conveyancing costs will increase in light of this.
