I am purchasing my first flat in Woodbury with a mortgage from Virgin Money. The sellers refused to move on the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of extras instead. The house builders rep advised me not reveal to my lawyer about this side-deal as it will impact my mortgage with the lender. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

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%.

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.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in last month in what should have been a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Woodbury is the location of the property. Is there any advice you can impart?

Flying freeholds in Woodbury are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Woodbury you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Woodbury may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.

My husband and I are 3 weeks into a freehold purchase having been recommend to conveyancers by the selling agent to handle our conveyancing in Woodbury. I am am starting to be frustrated with the level of service. Can you help me find new conveyancers?

A lawyer would need to be very poor to suggest diss instructing them. Has the loan offer been sent? In the event that it has you need to make them aware of the new contact details and have the loan are re-issued. Your new solicitor ideally should be on the banks panel to avoid escalating costs and complications. So that should be your first question of the new conveyancers.
