My wife and I are soon to exchange buying a house in Babbacombe but as a result of damage from the recent storms I have was able negotiate recompense from the vendor in the sum of £3k taking the form of a adjustment in the price. I had intended this to be dealt with as part of a side agreement yet Aldermore are not allowing this. Why were they informed?

The lawyer that is on a Aldermore approved list is required to inform Aldermore of any variations to the sale price. If you prohibit your solicitor to disclose the reduction to Aldermore then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Aldermore and you would have to appoint a new property lawyer for your conveyancing in Babbacombe.

I'm the only beneficiary of my late father’s estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Babbacombe. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in January. I plan to dispose of the house. I understand that there is a CML six month 'rule', which means that my property ownership will be regarded the same way as though I had purchased the house in January. Will no one buy the property for half a year?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook obliges conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you might be caught by that. Some lenders would take a sensible view as this obligation principally exists to identify subsales or the wholesaling and assigning of property.

That being said,the Council of Mortgage Lenders have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for solicitor practices wishing to join their approved list of firms.

We had chosen conveyancing lawyers with offices in Babbacombe on the Coventry BS solicitor approved list. They are now charging me a separate amount for handling the Coventry BS mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee specified by Coventry BS?

Unfortunately, as long as it is in their Terms of Engagement or estimate then yes your lawyer may charge a fee for this. The fee is not dictated by Coventry BS but by your Babbacombe lawyer. Some firms on the Coventry BS panel will charge ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but plenty of firms include it on their overall fee.

I am looking for a flat up to £195,000 and found one round the corner in Babbacombe I like with open areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 49 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Babbacombe for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?

Should you need a home loan that many years will likely be an issue. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you could request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.
