My son is in the process of securing a new build apartment in Halstead with a home loan from Barclays. His lawyer has advised him of a delay in completing the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. Who needs to receive the form?

The form is intended to provide information to the main parties engaged in the purchase. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the Barclays conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the valuer when requested. The developer will be required to start the process by downloading the form and completing it. The form will therefore need to be available for the valuer at the time of his or her site visit. The form should be sent to the Barclays conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £245,000 and found one close by in Halstead I like with a park and railway links nearby, the downside is that it only has 61 years on the lease. There is not much else in Halstead in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?

Should you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may be problematic. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.
