I am purchasing a new build house in Braunton with the aid of help to buy. The developers would not reduce the amount so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The house builders rep advised me not to tell my conveyancer about the extras as it will impact my loan with the lender. Is this normal?.

Due to the encouragement of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Braunton ahead of retaining lawyers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold overhang to the property. Our surveyor has said that some mortgage companies may refuse to give a loan on this type of property.

It varies from the lender to lender. HSBC has different requirements from Nationwide. If you e-mail us we can check with the appropriate bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Braunton.
