I am purchasing a new build house in Widnes with a loan from Yorkshire Building Society. The developers refused to budge the amount so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The estate agent told me not reveal to my conveyancer about this side-deal as it will adversely affect my mortgage 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%.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £245,000 and found one near me in Widnes I like with open areas and railway links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 61 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Widnes for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease will likely be problematic. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you could request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.

My conveyancer (approximately 200 kilometers from meneeds me to sign a statutory declaration ahead of completion.

strictly speaking you are not likely to be required to have the documents attested by a conveyancing solicitor. Normally any notary public or solicitor will suffice regardless of whether they are Widnes based
