I have been told that property searches are the primary reason for stalling in Upney conveyancing transactions. Is this right?

Local searches are unlikely to feature in any slowing down conveyancing in Upney.
Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to our home are lost. The solicitors who conducted the conveyancing in Upney 4 years ago no longer exist. What are my options?
These day there are duplicates made of almost everything, and your solicitor should be aware exactly where to locate all the suitable documentation so you may buy or dispose of your house without a hitch. Where duplicates are not available, your solicitor can arrange cover in the form of insurance or indemnities against possible claims on your premises.
I'm buying my first flat in Upney benefiting from help to buy. The builders would not budge the amount so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The house builders rep suggested that I not disclose to my lawyer about this extras as it could adversely affect my loan with the lender. 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.

Is it legal for a freeholder to charge an administration fee for a leasehold conveyance in Upney?
Upney conveyancing on leasehold maisonettes often necessitates the buyer’s solicitor sending questions for the landlord to address. Although the landlord is under no legal obligation to address these enquiries most will be content to do so. They may charge a reasonable administration fee for responding to questions or supplying documentation. There is no upper cap for such fees. The average costs for the information that you are referring to is over three hundred pounds, in some situations it is above £800. The administration charge invoiced by the landlord must be accompanied by a summary of rights and obligations in relation to administration charges, without which the invoice is technically not due. Reality however dictates that you have little choice but to pay whatever is requested of you should you wish to exchange contracts with the buyer.
