I'm purchasing my first flat in Shotton with the aid of help to buy. The builders would not budge the amount so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The house builders rep suggested that I not reveal to my conveyancer about the deal as it could put at risk my mortgage with the lender. Is this normal?.

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 two weeks back in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Shotton is where the house is located. Can you offer any assistance?

Flying freeholds in Shotton are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses.

Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy.

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 premises.

Am I right to be suspicious about estate agents that I am dealing with are recommending a nationwide conveyancing firm rather than a local Shotton conveyancing firm?

As is the case with lots of professional services, often input from family and friends can be extremely useful or valuable. But there are lots of parties with a keen interest in a conveyancing deal; estate agents, mortgage brokers and banks may suggest solicitors to select. Sometimes these solicitors might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but sometimes there behind the scenes commercial relationship behind the recommendation. You have the right to choose your own conveyancer. However, bear in mind that many lenders specify a panel list of conveyancers you must use for the lender aspect of your conveyancing.
