I am buying a new build house in Hoxton with the aid of help to buy. The builders refused to reduce the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The sale representative suggested that I not disclose to my solicitor about the extras as it will impact my mortgage with Virgin Money. 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.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and found one near me in Hoxton I like with open areas and transport links nearby, however it only has 61 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Hoxton suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?

If you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.

I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Hoxton. Before I get started I would like to find out the remaining lease term.

If the lease is registered - and almost all are in Hoxton - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

I have attempted and failed to negotiate with my landlord to extend my lease without getting anywhere. Can a leaseholder apply to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal? Can you recommend a Hoxton conveyancing firm to assist?

Where there is a absentee freeholder or where there is disagreement about the premium for a lease extension, under the relevant legislation you can apply to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to calculate the amount due.

An example of a Lease Extension matter before the tribunal for a Hoxton property is 137 & 139 Haberdasher Street in December 2013. The Tribunal determines in accordance with section 48 and Schedule 13 of the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 that the premium for the extended lease for each Property should be £12,350.00. This case affected 2 flats. The number of years remaining on the existing lease(s) was 72.39 years.

Been on the hunt for a lawyer for freehold sale conveyancing in Hoxton. I'm selling, uncomplicated no mortgage to discharge, no hurry, currently vacant. Got an estimate from a solicitor for £1000 plus VAT which is a little high considering its so straightforward. Can I pay less for conveyancing in Hoxton?

Considering it’s a sale only, 475 + VAT should be about the lowest for sale conveyancing in Hoxton.
