I am buying a new build house in Biddenham benefiting from help to buy. The builders refused to reduce the price so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The estate agent suggested that I not inform my conveyancer about the side-deal as it will jeopardize my loan with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
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.
I am looking for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and identified one close by in Biddenham I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 49 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Biddenham suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a short lease?
If you require a mortgage that many years may be an issue. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.
