I'm buying a new build house in Burton Bradstock benefiting from help to buy. The sellers refused to reduce the price so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The sale representative told me not inform my lawyer about this deal as it will put at risk my loan with the lender. Should I keep quiet?.

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've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on two weeks back in what was supposed to be a simple, chain free conveyancing. Burton Bradstock is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Burton Bradstock are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Burton Bradstock you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Burton Bradstock may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.

The conveyancers handling our conveyancing in Burton Bradstock has forwarded documents to review that reveal that the land is unregistered with epitome documents. Is it not the case that all houses in Burton Bradstock are registered?

Although most properties in Burton Bradstock are now registered with the Land Registry there are still a few that are unregistered. Any property in Burton Bradstock that has been purchased since the late 1980’s will have been registered at the HMLR under the compulsory ‘first registration’ scheme. However, if a Burton Bradstock property has not changed hands in that time then it’s likely the old fashioned title deeds will be the only evidence of ownership.Plenty of Burton Bradstock conveyancing solicitors should be familiar with such matters but in the event that uncertainty prevails the usual proposition presently seems to be for the seller’s conveyancer to undertake the registration formalities first and subsequently deal with the sale conveyance - this can though naturally cause a drawn-out home move.
