I am purchasing a new build house in Billericay with the aid of help to buy. The developers refused to reduce the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The sale representative advised me not to tell my solicitor about the side-deal as it may jeopardize my mortgage with the lender. Should I keep quiet?.
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 £305k and found one close by in Billericay I like with a park and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 49 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Billericay suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?
Should you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years 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 current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this.
