It is is a decade since I bought my property in Brough. Conveyancing solicitors have recently been retained on the sale but I can't locate the deeds. Will this cause complications?
You need not be too concerned. First the deeds may be retained by the lender or they could be in the possession of the conveyancers who oversaw your purchase. Secondly the likelihood is that the property will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you are the registered owner by your conveyancing lawyers procuring up to date copy of the land registers. Almost all conveyancing in Brough relates to registered property but in the rare situation where your property is not registered it adds to the complexity but is not insurmountable.

I am purchasing a new build house in Brough with a mortgage from Platform Home Loans Ltd. The builders refused to move on the amount so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The property agent advised me not disclose to my conveyancer about the deal as it could put at risk my mortgage with the bank. Is this normal?.
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.
