What is your number one tip for choosing a conveyancing solicitor in Totland
It would be unwise to be seduced by the lowest Totland conveyancing fees. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need.

I happen to be the sole beneficiary of my late father’s will with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Totland. The Totland property was put into my name in September. I plan to dispose of the property. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', meaning my property ownership may be considered the same way as though I had purchased the property in September. Will no one buy the property for half a year?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook requires solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you could be caught by that. many banks would take a practical view as this provision principally exists to capture subsales or the quick reselling of properties.
My offer was accepted on a property in Totland on 20/8/2021, valuation was booked 3 days after, received a clean bill of health. Solicitor instructed, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to UBS and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the UBS conveyancing panel. Can the lender hold off the offer?
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for UBS to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the UBS conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

I am buying a new build house in Totland with a loan from Yorkshire Building Society. The sellers refused to budge the price so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The estate agent told me not inform my lawyer about this extras as it could affect my loan 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%.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £245,000 and found one close by in Totland I like with a park and transport links nearby, however it only has 52 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Totland in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be an issue. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you can ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.
Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my ground floor apartment in Totland. Conveyancing is yet to be initiated, however I have just had a half-yearly maintenance charge invoice – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?
It best that you clear the invoice as usual given that all rents and service charges should be apportioned on completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.
