I'm purchasing a new build house in Bexleyheath with a loan from Halifax. The builders refused to move on the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The sale representative suggested that I not disclose to my lawyer about this extras as it would impact my mortgage with Halifax. 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 am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and identified one near me in Bexleyheath I like with open areas and station nearby, the downside is that it's only got 49 years on the lease. There is not much else in Bexleyheath suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?

If you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be problematic. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you can request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this.
