I am expecting a offer of a home loan from Lloyds. My intention is to retain the legal services of a Licensed Conveyancer in Truro. Does the Lloyds Conveyancing panel include Licensed Conveyancers?
The Lloyds conveyancing panel is, like many other lenders, represented by the Council or Mortgage Lenders or BSA, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.
My grandson is purchasing a newly built flat in Truro with a mortgage from Nationwide. His conveyancer has advised him of a delay in completing the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. This document is news to me - what is it and who needs sight of it?
The document is intended to provide information to the main parties engaged in the transaction. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the Nationwide conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the valuer when requested. The developer will be required to start the process by downloading the form and completing it. The form will therefore need to be available for the valuer at the time of his or her site visit. The form should be sent to the Nationwide conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.

My wife and I have a terraced Georgian house in Truro. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Aldermore. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw two entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold under the matching address. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?
You need to review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Truro and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with mortgage companies. You can also check the situation with the conveyancing practitioner who conducted the work.
My husband and I are novice buyers - agreed a price, but the estate agent advised that the owners will only go ahead if we instruct the agent's preferred solicitors as they need an ‘expedited deal’. We would rather use a family conveyancer with experience of conveyancing in Truro
It is unlikely the sellers are behind this. Should the owner desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a motivated purchaser is counter productive. Avoid the agents and go straight to the sellers and explain that (a)you are genuine buyers (b)you are ready to go, with finances in place © you are unencumbered (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you intend to instruct your own,trusted Truro conveyancing lawyers - as opposed tothose that will earn their estate agent a commission or hit his conveyancing thresholds demanded by senior management.
