I'm purchasing my first flat in Littleport with a loan from Platform Home Loans Ltd. The builders would not reduce the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The property agent suggested that I not reveal to my conveyancer about the deal as it may put at risk my loan with the bank. Should I keep quiet?.
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%.

I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and found one near me in Littleport I like with open areas and railway links nearby, the downside is that it only has 51 years on the lease. There is not much else in Littleport for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a lease with such few years left?
If you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may 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 owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.
My wife and I have chosen a Littleport conveyancing solicitor for our home move (novice purchasers) and have noticed in the terms and conditions that they are not overseen by the FCA. Should I be concerned or is that usually the case with property lawyer?
We can't see why they should be. Most property lawyer don't lend money. They will be governed by the SRA, who have strict stipulations regulating amounts held by them.
