What is the first thing I need to know regarding purchase conveyancing in Tetbury?
You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Tetbury and elsewhere in England and Wales is often a confrontational process. Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there exists lots of room for conflict between you and others involved in the transaction. E.g., the seller, selling agent and on occasion a mortgage company. Appointing a law firm for your conveyancing in Tetbury should not be taken lightly as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the SOLE party in the transaction whose interest is to look after your legal interests and to keep you safe.
We are witnessing a worrying emergence in the "blame" culture- someone has to be at fault for the process taking so long. You must always trust your solicitor ahead of all other players in the conveyancing process.
I'm purchasing a new build house in Tetbury with a mortgage from The Mortgage Works. The developers would not budge the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The sale representative advised me not inform my lawyer about the extras as it would put at risk my mortgage with the bank. 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'm selling a house in Tetbury. I have found my conveyancer's company on the CLC list, but I can't find my lawyer's name on the list. Is this a big problem?
Not every individual in the law firm must be listed by the regulator. As long there is a manager qualified to 'oversee' the work, the actual day-to-day activity can be conducted by unqualified staff.
