I'm buying a new build house in Newbury Park with a loan from Barclays . The developers refused to reduce the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The property agent told me not inform my conveyancer about this extras as it may adversely affect my loan with Barclays . Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
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.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Newbury Park is the location of the property. Is there any advice you can impart?
Flying freeholds in Newbury Park are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Newbury Park you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Newbury Park may decide 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 am employed by a reputable estate agency in Newbury Park where we have witnessed a few flat sales derailed as a result of short leases. I have been given conflicting advice from local Newbury Park conveyancing firms. Please can you confirm whether the owner of a flat can commence the lease extension formalities for the purchaser on completion of the sale?
As long as the seller has owned the lease for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to kick-start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. This means that the proposed purchaser can avoid having to wait 2 years for a lease extension. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment has to be done prior to, or simultaneously with completion of the disposal of the property.
An alternative approach is to agree the lease extension with the freeholder either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the buyer.
I have given up trying to reach an agreement for a lease extension in Newbury Park. Can this matter be resolved via the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal?
in cases where there is a absentee landlord or if there is dispute about the premium for a lease extension, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 it is possible to make an application to the LVT to arrive at the sum to be paid.
An example of a Lease Extension matter before the tribunal for a Newbury Park premises is 104 Coventry Road in July 2014. The Tribunal determined that the lease extension permium should be £22,896.15 This case was in relation to 1 flat. The number of years remaining on the existing lease(s) was 60.29 years.
Our lawyer in Newbury Park has discovered a a problem with the lease for the property we are purchasing in Newbury Park. The seller’s lawyers have offered defective title insurance as a solution. We are happy with insurance and will cover the costs. Our lawyer says that as he is on the bank conveyancing panel he must be satisfied that the lender is happy with this solution. Are we the client or is the bank?
