I can't travel far from Thornbury. Can you please clarify why all Thornbury property lawyers are not on all mortgage company panels?

Lenders highlight the fact that solicitor-led fraud is thought to be responsible for millions of pounds of fraud every year.The removal 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 triggered a major policy change in the sector. It led to lenders removing less reputable firms from their panel of approved conveyancers .

My wife and I are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our home in Thornbury and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was constructed land that was not decontaminated. A local conveyancer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers are using an internet conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Thornbury. Having lived in Thornbury for 5 years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to get confirmation need.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer already. What do they say? 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 illness)

I used Wolstenholmes several years ago for my conveyancing in Thornbury. Now, I need the documents however the law firm is no longer operating. What do I do?

You should contact the Solicitors Regulatory Authority (SRA) to assist in tracing your conveyancing files. They can be contacted on please contact on 0870 606 2555. Alternatively, you should use their online form to make an enquiry. You will need to provide the SRA with as much information as possible to assist their search, including the name and address in Thornbury of the conveyancing firm of solicitors you previously used, the name of conveyancing solicitor with whom you had dealings, and the date on which you last had dealings with the firm.

I'm purchasing a new build house in Thornbury benefiting from help to buy. The sellers refused to budge the amount so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The house builders rep advised me not to tell my conveyancer about this deal as it could impact 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 opted to have a survey done on a property in Thornbury before retaining conveyancers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold element to the property. The surveyor has said that some banks may not issue a mortgage on a flying freehold premises.

It varies from the lender to lender. Lloyds has different instructions for example to Halifax. If you contact us we can look into this further via the appropriate mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Thornbury. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.
