We were just about to sign contracts for a garden flat in Abertillery. We have hit a problem. The mortgage offer with Virgin Money expires on 16/11/2020 but the vendors are putting forward a completion date of 18/11/2020. Is it possible to extend the loan expiry date?
The best person to address this issue is your lawyer who is in a position to determine if they better off negotiating with the lender, vendor’s lawyers, estate agents or conceivably all three given the history of your conveyancing as of today.

I'm buying my first flat in Abertillery benefiting from help to buy. The builders refused to budge the price so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The sale representative advised me not disclose to my conveyancer about this side-deal as it may impact my mortgage with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
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've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a simple, no chain conveyancing. Abertillery is the location of the property. Can you offer any advice?
Flying freeholds in Abertillery are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Abertillery you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Abertillery may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
