I'm purchasing a new build house in Malden Rushett benefiting from help to buy. The sellers would not move on the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of extras instead. The estate agent suggested that I not disclose to my conveyancer about the side-deal as it could adversely affect my mortgage with Halifax. 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%.
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've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Malden Rushett is the location of the property. Is there any guidance you can give?
Flying freeholds in Malden Rushett are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Malden Rushett you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Malden Rushett may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
I have been pointed in your direction by a few property agents in Malden Rushett to choose a conveyancer on your site. What’s the financial incentive for Estate Agents to market your site over another?
We refuse to make any commission for directing people our way. We thought it would be too underhand a fee as home movers will think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not receiving any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.

if there is a absentee landlord or where there is disagreement about what the lease extension should cost, under the relevant statutes you can apply to the LVT to judgment on the amount due.
