Assuming the title is registered the information relating to your proprietorship will be documented by the Land Registry under a Title Number. It is possible to carry out a search at the Land Registry, find your house and secure up to date copies of the property title for a small fee. If the property is Leasehold then the Land Registry will in most cases retain a certified copy of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be ordered for a small fee.

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.

If the lease is registered - and almost all are in Yarm - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties.

I am purchasing a garden maisonette in Yarm. Conveyancing lawyer has been waiting for, from the seller, building insurance paperwork.
