All was ready to move into my new home in Creekmouth next Friday. I have now been asked to send a copy of my building insurance schedule by my solicitor as he says that he has to check this in his capacity as lawyer for the lender. What risks does the lender expect the insurance to cover?

I'm purchasing my first flat in Creekmouth with a mortgage from Britannia. The sellers would not budge the amount so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The sale representative suggested that I not inform my conveyancer about the side-deal as it could 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%.

I today plan to offer on a house that appears to be perfect, at a reasonable figure which is making it all the more appealing. I have since been informed that it's a leasehold as opposed to freehold. I am assuming that there are particular concerns buying a leasehold house in Creekmouth. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed. Will my lawyers set out the risks of buying a leasehold house in Creekmouth ?

Most houses in Creekmouth are freehold rather than leasehold. In this scenario it’s worth having a local solicitor used to dealing with such properties who can assist with the conveyancing process. We note that you are purchasing in Creekmouth in which case you should be looking for a Creekmouth conveyancing solicitor and check that they have experience in advising on 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 with the house. The lease will likely included provisions for example obtaining the freeholder’sconsent to conduct changes to the property. It may be necessary to pay a service charge towards the upkeep 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 Creekmouth. Given that I can not reach agreement with the freeholder, can the Leasehold valuation Tribunal determine the amount due for the purchase of the freehold?

if there is a missing landlord or where there is dispute about what the lease extension should cost, under the relevant statutes it is possible to make an application to the LVT to determine the premium.

The unexpired term as at the valuation date was 69.77 years.
