My son-in-law is buying a new build apartment in Upper Clapton with a mortgage from Yorkshire BS. His conveyancer has advised him of a delay in completing the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. Who needs to receive the form?

The document is intended to provide information to the main parties engaged in the purchase. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the surveyor when asked. 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 Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.

It is 10 years ago since I acquired my property in Upper Clapton. Conveyancing lawyers have now been appointed on the sale but I am unable to find the title documents. Will this cause complications?

You need not be too concerned. Firstly the deeds may be kept by your mortgage company or they could be in the possession of the conveyancers who oversaw your purchase. Secondly the likelihood is that the title will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you are the registered owner by your conveyancing solicitors obtaining up to date copy of the land registers. The vast majority of conveyancing in Upper Clapton involves registered property but in the rare situation where your property is not registered it adds to the complexity but is resolvable.

As far as conveyancing in Upper Clapton registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of the country. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can differ depending on who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry must send notices to any other parties. At present roughly three quarters of submission are completed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be longer delays. Historically registration is effected after the purchaser is living at the property therefore 'speed' is not usually top priority but if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer should contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.
