I can not work out if my lender requires a lease extension. I have telephoned my De Beauvoir Town bank branch on various occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they would lend. My De Beauvoir Town conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they will not lend based on their specific requirements. Who do I believe?
The lawyer must comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook Part 2 provisions for your bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the mortgage company to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.
I have instructed a De Beauvoir Town lawyer having made sure that they are on the UBS conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?
UBS will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually UBS will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your property lawyer will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your De Beauvoir Town postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with UBS, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in De Beauvoir Town.

I am buying a new build house in De Beauvoir Town with a loan from Norwich and Peterborough Building Society. The sellers refused to budge the price so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The sale representative suggested that I not to tell my lawyer about this extras as it could jeopardize my loan with Norwich and Peterborough Building Society. Is this normal?.
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.

What makes a De Beauvoir Town lease problematic?
Leasehold conveyancing in De Beauvoir Town is not unique. Most leases are individual and legal mistakes in the legal wording can sometimes mean that certain clauses are wrong. For example, if your lease is missing any of the following, it could be defective:
Repairing obligations to or maintain elements of the premises Clauses dealing with recovering service charges for expenditure on the building or common parts.
You will encounter a problem when selling your property if you have a defective lease primarily because it impacts on the ability to obtain a mortgage on the property. Santander, Skipton Building Society, and Godiva Mortgages Ltd all have express requirements when it comes to what is expected in a lease. If a mortgage lender believes that the lease does not cover certain provisions they may refuse to grant the mortgage, forcing the buyer to pull out.
