I'm buying a new build house in Canning Town benefiting from help to buy. The builders would not reduce the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The house builders rep advised me not to tell my solicitor about this extras as it will put at risk 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've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a quick, no chain conveyancing. Canning Town is where the house is located. Can you offer any guidance?
Flying freeholds in Canning Town are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Canning Town you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Canning Town may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.

I am looking at a couple of apartments in Canning Town both have in the region of forty five years left on the lease term. Will this present a problem?
A lease is a right to use the premises for a period of time. As a lease shortens the value of the lease deteriorates and it becomes more costly to acquire a lease extension. For this reason it is advisable to increase the term of the lease. More often than not it is difficult to sell a property with a short lease as mortgage lenders may be unwilling to lend money on properties of this type. Lease enfranchisement can be a protracted process. We recommend you get professional assistance from a conveyancer and surveyor with experience in this arena.
I have had difficulty in trying to purchase the freehold in Canning Town. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal adjudicate on premiums?
