The estate agent advised me not disclose to my conveyancer about this side-deal as it may impact my loan with Santander. 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.

    Please note that where the lease has less than eighty years it will impact the salability of the property. It is worth checking with your bank that they are content with residual term of the lease. Leases with fewer than 80 years remaining means that you will probably have to extend the lease at some point and it is worth finding out how much this will be. Remember, in most cases you would need to own the residence for two years in order to be entitled to extend the lease.

This question is helpful as a) areas can cause problems in the building as the common areas may start to deteriorate where maintenance remain unpaid b) if the tenants have a dispute with the running of the building you will need to have all the details
