I am buying my first flat in Swinton benefiting from help to buy. The developers refused to budge the price so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The house builders rep advised me not reveal to my conveyancer about this deal as it will put at risk my loan with the bank. Should I keep quiet?.

I've recently bought a leasehold flat in Swinton. Am I liable to pay service charges relating to a period prior to my ownership?
Where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous owner and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. Strange as it may seem, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. A critical element of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to be sure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.
If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of comprehensive due diligence. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other concerns that need to be taken into account and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward placing reliance on this information before getting professional advice.
My mother and father cant seem to find their Swinton land registry title on the online search facility. They have a vague memory 50 years ago when they bought the property there were complications with the post code not being recognised in some systems.
The vast majority of residences in Swinton should show up. Have you endevoured to search to simply the postcode. Normally it will reveal all the residences within that postcode. Where recorded it will show up with a title number. Where they bought back in the 70’s it's conceivable it may be unregistered. The address may still be revealed but with the title number shown 'na'. In this scenario you will need to track down the original title documentation which might be with your parent’s bank.
