I'm purchasing my first flat in Fairbourne with a mortgage from Barnsley Building Society. The developers refused to reduce the price so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The sale representative advised me not reveal to my conveyancer about the extras as it could impact my loan with Barnsley Building Society. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
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.

I am looking at a couple of apartments in Fairbourne which have approximately fifty years unexpired on the lease term. Do I need to be concerned?
There are no two ways about it. A leasehold flat in Fairbourne is a wasting asset as a result of the shortening lease. The nearer the lease gets to zero years unexpired, the more it reduces the value of the premises. The majority of purchasers and mortgage companies, leases with less than 75 years become less and less attractive. On a more positive note, leaseholders can extend their leases by serving a Section 42 Notice. One stipulation is that they must have owned the premises for two years (unlike a Section 13 notice for purchasing the freehold, when leaseholders can participate from day one of ownership). When successful, they will have the right to an extension of 90 years to the current term and ground rent is effectively reduced to zero. Before moving forward with a purchase of a property with a short lease term remaining you should talk to a solicitor specialising in lease extensions and leasehold enfranchisement. We are are happy to put you in touch with Fairbourne conveyancing experts who will explain the options available to you during an initial telephone conversation free of charge. More often than not it is possible to negotiate informally with the freeholder to extend the lease. They may agree to a smaller lump sum and an increase in the ground rent, but to shorter extension terms in return. You need to ensure that any new terms represent good long-term value compared with the standard benefits of the Section 42 Notice and that onerous clauses are not inserted into any redrafting of the lease.

My boyfriend is purchasing a studio flat in Fairbourne. He has received a fee estimate by the lawyer connected to the selling agents and it came to £1156 . It was ten years ago I sold and bought a property and the fee was £495. Have charges really escalated to that extent?
What does the conveyancing estimate include? Is it just for the legal fees, or what you will be paying in total (for instance Fairbourne searches, land registry fees, etc)
