I'm purchasing a new build house in Beaumaris with a loan from Lloyds TSB Bank. The sellers would not move on the price so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The property agent told me not disclose to my lawyer about this extras as it may affect my loan with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer 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 am looking for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and identified one near me in Beaumaris I like with a park and railway links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 49 years on the lease. There is not much else in Beaumaris for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?
If you need a home loan that many years will be an issue. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.
In what way does the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 affect my commercial premises in Beaumaris and how can your lawyers assist?
The 1954 Act affords security of tenure to commercial leaseholders, granting the legal entitlement to make a request to court for a continuation of occupancy at the end of the lease term. There are certain specified grounds where a landlord can refuse a lease renewal and the rules are complex. Fees are different for commercial conveyancing.

A defective lease can cause problems when trying to sell a property as they can affect a potential buyer’s ability to obtain a mortgage.
