We are about to complete on the purchase of a house in Crofton Park but as a result of wreckage from some water damage at the property I have was able negotiate recompense from the vendor in the sum of £2k in the form of a reduction in the price. I had intended this to be dealt with as part of a side agreement however Clydesdale are not allowing this. Why were they involved?

Your property lawyer that is on a Clydesdale approved list is required to inform Clydesdale of any amendments to the purchase price. If you were to refuse your conveyancer to report the reduction to Clydesdale then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Clydesdale and you would have to appoint a new lawyer for your conveyancing in Crofton Park.

I'm purchasing a new build house in Crofton Park with a mortgage from TSB. The builders refused to budge the amount so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The property agent told me not disclose to my solicitor about this side-deal as it may affect my loan with the lender. Should I keep quiet?.

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 have just appointed agents to market my 2 bed flat in Crofton Park. Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon, but I have just had a quarterly maintenance charge invoice – what should I do?

The sensible thing to do is clear the invoice as you normally would because all rents and maintenance invoices will be apportioned on completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.

Having spent months of negotiations we simply can't agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Crofton Park. Does the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal have jurisdiction to calculate the appropriate figures?

in cases where there is a missing freeholder or where there is dispute about what the lease extension should cost, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to make a decision on the price payable.

An example of a Lease Extension case for a Crofton Park residence is Flat b 14 Kemble Road in May 2014. The Tribunal assessed the value of the premium payable for the lease extension to be £9,761 This case affected 1 flat.
