I am buying a new build house in Caversham with a mortgage from Halifax. The developers refused to budge the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The sale representative suggested that I not inform my lawyer about the deal as it will jeopardize my mortgage with the lender. Is this normal?.
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%.
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.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and identified one round the corner in Caversham I like with open areas and railway links nearby, the downside is that it only has 51 remaining years left on the lease.

If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you.

I am in the process of buying my 1st house in Caversham. Conveyancing solicitor already selected. The financial consultant advised that a survey is not needed as the property was only constructed 16 yrs ago.
The bare minimum you need a Home Buyer's Report. Given the residence was constructed more than a decade ago the property will not come with a warranty, so you would be well advised not to take a risk. For a property that age with no signs of problems a Home Buyer's report may suffice. They will highlight any obvious problems and suggest additional investigation if appropriate. Where there are any indications of material issues seek a full structural survey.
