I am buying a new build house in Surbiton with a loan from The Mortgage Works. The developers refused to budge the price so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The sale representative advised me not disclose to my lawyer about the extras as it will put at risk my mortgage with the bank. 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 am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and identified one close by in Surbiton I like with a park and station nearby, however it's only got 49 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Surbiton suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a mortgage that many years will be problematic. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you may ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.

We expect to complete our sale of a £375,000 maisonette in Surbiton next Thursday.

Is the landlord entitled to charge an administration fee for a flat conveyance in Surbiton?
Surbiton conveyancing on leasehold maisonettes usually involves the purchaser’s lawyer sending questions for the landlord to answer. Although the landlord is not legally bound to answer such questions the majority will be content to assist. They may charge a reasonable administration fee for responding to questions or supplying documentation. There is no set fee. The average costs for the paperwork that you are referring to is £350, in some situations it exceeds £800. The management information fee invoiced by the landlord must be sent together with a summary of entitlements and obligations in relation to administration charges, otherwise the charge is not strictly payable. Reality however dictates that you have no option but to pay whatever is requested of you should you wish to exchange contracts with the buyer.
