It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing solicitor currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You must enquire of your lawyer before you do anything.

I am purchasing a new build house in Little Hulton benefiting from help to buy. The developers refused to reduce the price so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The sale representative told me not reveal to my conveyancer about this extras as it could impact my mortgage 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%.
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 for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and identified one near me in Little Hulton I like with amenity areas and station nearby, however it's only got 61 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Little Hulton in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?
If you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may be an issue. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you could request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.
