Me and my brother purchased a renovated Victorian house in Aberdovey. Conveyancing practitioner acted for me and Coventry Building Society. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are two entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold with the matching address. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??
You need to read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for 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 Aberdovey and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also question the position with your conveyancing practitioner who carried out the work.
I am buying a new build house in Aberdovey with the aid of help to buy. The developers refused to budge the amount so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The property agent advised me not inform my lawyer about this side-deal as it will 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.
