My husband and I are acquiring a newly constructed flat in Yelverton and my lawyer is informing me that she has to the bank to disclose incentives from the seller. The Estate Agents are hassling me to exchange contracts and I have no desire to delay the conveyancing. Is my lawyer right?

You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your lawyer. A precondition to being on a mortgage company panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook provisions.

I'm buying my first flat in Yelverton with a mortgage from Godiva Mortgages Ltd. The sellers refused to budge the amount so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The property agent advised me not reveal to my solicitor about the extras as it could adversely affect my loan with the bank. Should I keep quiet?.

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%.

I was advised by a number of estate agents in Yelverton to locate a conveyancer on your site. What’s the financial inducement for Estate Agents to market your lawyers over and above alternative conveyancing organisations?

We don’t give any financial incentive for sending work in our direction. We found it would be just too difficult to pay a commission because home movers will think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not getting any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.

I own a leasehold flat in Yelverton. Conveyancing and Bank of Scotland mortgage organised. I have received a letter from someone claiming to own the reversionary interest in the property. It included a ground rent demand for rent dating back to 1992. The conveyancing solicitor in Yelverton who previously acted has long since retired. What should I do?

The first thing you should do is make enquiries of HMLR to make sure that this person is in fact the new freeholder. It is not necessary to incur the fees of a Yelverton conveyancing lawyer to do this as it can be done on-line for £3. You should note that in any event, even if this is the rightful freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.

I own a garden flat in Yelverton, conveyancing was carried out in 2000. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Equivalent properties in Yelverton with over 90 years remaining are worth £170,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 levied per year. The lease ceases on 21st October 2099

With only 78 years left to run the likely cost is going to span between £7,600 and £8,800 as well as legals.

The figure above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs in the absence of comprehensive investigations. Do not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be additional issues that need to be taken into account and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
