Before the recession most banks had an appetite for risk which was higher than today. Almost all Cinderford conveyancing firms would have been on most mortgage company panels. The FSA in 2010 carried out a thematic investigation into mortgage fraud which come to the conclusion: mortgage lenders should know the conveyancing solicitors dealt with. Consequently, lenders have regularly sought more data from law firms regarding their operations and their employees and establishing certain criteria such a completing on a minimum amount of conveyancing.

I'm buying a new build house in Cinderford benefiting from help to buy. The builders refused to reduce the price so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The property agent told me not disclose to my conveyancer about this side-deal as it would put at risk my mortgage with HSBC Bank. 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.

Rather than looking online forget looking online you should go and have a look at Cinderford. In the meantime here are some basic statistics that we found

I've found a house that appears to be perfect, at a great figure which is making it more attractive. I have just discovered that the title is leasehold as opposed to freehold. I would have thought that there are issues buying a leasehold house in Cinderford. Conveyancing solicitors have not yet been appointed. Will my lawyers set out the implications of buying a leasehold house in Cinderford ?

Most houses in Cinderford are freehold and not leasehold. In this scenario it’s worth having a local solicitor used to dealing with such properties who can assist with the conveyancing process. it is apparent that you are purchasing in Cinderford in which case you should be shopping around for a Cinderford conveyancing solicitor and check that they are used to dealing with leasehold houses. As a matter of priority you will need to check the unexpired lease term. Being a lessee you will not be at liberty to do whatever you want to the property. The lease comes with conditions such as obtaining the freeholder’spermission to carry out alterations. You may also be required to pay a contribution towards the maintenance of the estate where the property is part of an estate. Your solicitor should report to you on the legal implications.

I own a basement flat in Cinderford, conveyancing having been completed half a dozen years ago. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Corresponding properties in Cinderford with an extended lease are worth £180,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £65 charged once a year. The lease finishes on 21st October 2080

With just 58 years remaining on your lease we estimate the premium for your lease extension to be between £22,800 and £26,400 as well as professional fees.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to advice on the actual costs in the absence of detailed due diligence. Do not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be additional concerns that need to be considered and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward placing reliance on this information without first getting professional advice.
