I am purchasing my first flat in Ouston benefiting from help to buy. The builders refused to move on the amount so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The sale representative advised me not reveal to my lawyer about this deal as it would adversely affect my loan with Leeds Building Society. 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 decided to have a survey completed on a property in Ouston in advance of retaining solicitors. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. Our surveyor advised that some lenders tend not issue a mortgage on this type of house.

My husband and I are new on the property ladder - had an offer accepted, yet the selling agent told us that the owners will only go ahead if we appoint their chosen solicitors as they are insisting on an ‘expedited deal’. My instinct tells me that we should use a family solicitor accustomed to conveyancing in Ouston

We suspect that the seller is not behind this demand. Should the seller desire ‘a quick sale', turning down a genuine purchaser is counter productive. Bypass the agents and go straight to the sellers and make sure they understand (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances in place © you are unencumbered (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you are going to appoint your preferred Ouston conveyancing firm - rather thanthose that will earn their negotiator at the agency a kickback or hit his conveyancing thresholds set by corporate headquarters.
