Unfortunately I am unable to travel far from Stow on the Wold. I would like to know the understand why all Stow on the Wold lawyers aren't automatically on all bank panels?
Lenders highlight the fact that solicitor-led fraud is considered to be responsible for millions of pounds of fraud every year.The dismissal of law firms from lender panels started with the rise in mortgage fraud, which prompted a thematic review by the Financial Services Authority in 2011. Its conclusions included recommendations for lending institutions to review their conveyancing panels, which kicked off a major policy change in the sector. It resulted in mortgage companies purging a number of firms from their panel of approved conveyancers .

We are downsizing from our property in Stow on the Wold and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being constructed on contaminated land. A local conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the buyers used an internet conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Stow on the Wold. We have lived in Stow on the Wold for 5 years we know of no issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to seek clarification need.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You need to check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same ailment)
I am purchasing a new build house in Stow on the Wold with a mortgage from The Mortgage Works. The sellers refused to move on the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The house builders rep told me not to tell my solicitor about the deal as it could jeopardize my mortgage with the lender. Is this normal?.
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.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to provide a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed due diligence.

My a dozen years ago. He has got wed, divorced and in recent months got remarried. He will be marketing the property in a couple of months. I believe he will just be need to provide a copy of his marriage certificates to the conveyancing practitioner but he is anxious it could frustrate the conveyancing. Is it worth updating the Land Registry documents for the house?
You are not required to update the title for the property on the basis that you have the evidence needed to demonstrate how the name change has come about.
The purchaser’s conveyancer should review the land registry entries and request evidence to prove the name change for instance marriage documentation.
