The house builders rep suggested that I not inform my solicitor about this extras as it could put at risk 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%.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and found one round the corner in Cricklewood I like with open areas and station nearby, the downside is that it's only got 51 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Cricklewood suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a lease with such few years left?

If you require a home loan the shortness of the lease will be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account.

An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.
