I own a terraced Edwardian house in Woburn Sands. Conveyancing solicitor acted for me and Bank of Scotland. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are two entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold under the matching address. Is it worth asking Bank of Scotland to clarify?
You should review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Woburn Sands and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also enquire as to the position with your conveyancing lawyer who completed the work.
I'm buying a new build house in Woburn Sands with a mortgage from Norwich and Peterborough Building Society. The builders would not move on the price so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The house builders rep suggested that I not disclose to my conveyancer about this deal as it would adversely affect my loan with Norwich and Peterborough Building Society. 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.
