We are expecting a mortgage offer soon. The lender mentioned the home loan came with free conveyancing. Is the implication that I have to use their panel lawyer as I would much rather instruct a local conveyancing solicitor in Umberleigh?

You should check but the chances are that allocate you one of their panel lawyers where you take up the "fee-free" incentive. Contact the mortgage company to explore if they allow a cash alternative. It is not unheard for a lender to give a £250 cashback as a further option in which case you could put that amount towards the cost for your conveyancing solicitor near Umberleigh.

We are selling our home in Umberleigh and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was built land that was not decontaminated. Any local conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the buyers instructed a national conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Umberleigh. We have lived in Umberleigh for many years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to seek clarification that the buyers are looking for.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You must enquire of 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 health insurance to cover that same illness)

My wife and I have a renovated Georgian house in Umberleigh. Conveyancing lawyer represented me and Aldermore. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw two entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold with the matching address. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?

You need to review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Umberleigh 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 purchasers. You can also check the situation with the conveyancing practitioner who conducted the purchase.

I'm purchasing my first flat in Umberleigh with the aid of help to buy. The developers refused to budge the price so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The property agent told me not inform my solicitor about the deal as it may affect my loan 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.

My husband and I are 18 days into a freehold purchase having been referred to solicitors by the local agent to perform conveyancing in Umberleigh. I am am very dissatisfied with the quality of service. Could you help me find new solicitors?

A lawyer would have to be very bad in order to consider replacing them. Has the loan offer been generated? In the event that it has you need to inform them of the new contact details and ensure the loan are re-sent. Your solicitor ideally should be on the lenders approved list to avoid supplemental expenses and frustration. That should be your starting point.
