I'm purchasing a new build house in North Ockendon with a loan from Birmingham Midshires. The sellers refused to budge the price so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The property agent suggested that I not inform my lawyer about the extras as it could affect my mortgage with Birmingham Midshires. Is this normal?.

I work for a busy estate agency in North Ockendon where we see a few leasehold sales put at risk as a result of short leases. I have been given contradictory information from local North Ockendon conveyancing firms. Could you clarify whether the seller of a flat can commence the lease extension process for the purchaser on completion of the sale?
Provided that the seller has been the owner 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 buyer need not have to sit tight for 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment needs to be completed before, or simultaneously with completion of the sale.
Alternatively, it may be possible 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.
Following months of correspondence we are unable to agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in North Ockendon. Can we issue an application to the Residential Property Tribunal Service?
Most definitely. We are happy to put you in touch with a North Ockendon conveyancing firm who can help.
