Signing on the dotted line is necessary for the conveyancer to officially exchange at the appropriate time, which is ordinarily shortly after signing.

I am purchasing a new build house in Southport benefiting from help to buy. The builders would not reduce the price so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The property agent suggested that I not to tell my conveyancer about this extras as it may adversely affect my loan with the bank. 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 have been on the look out for a flat up to £245,000 and identified one near me in Southport I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 51 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Southport suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a short lease?

Should you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.
