Our nephew is about to exchange on a house that has just been built in Endon with a mortgage from UBS. His conveyancer has advised him of a delay in completing the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. Who needs to receive the form?
The form is intended to provide information to the main parties involved in the transaction. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the UBS conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the valuer when asked. The developer will be required to start the process by downloading the form and completing it. The form will therefore need to be available for the valuer at the time of his or her site visit. The form should be sent to the UBS conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.
It is a dozen years since I bought my house in Endon. Conveyancing solicitors have just been appointed on the sale but I am unable to locate the title documents. Is this a problem?
Don’t worry too much. First there is a chance that the deeds will be kept by the mortgage company or they may be in the possession of the conveyancers who handled your purchase. Secondly the likelihood is that the land will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you are the registered owner by your conveyancing solicitors procuring current official copies of the land registers. The vast majority of conveyancing in Endon relates to registered property but in the rare situation where your property is unregistered it is more tricky but is resolvable.
I have been on the look out for a flat up to £195,000 and identified one round the corner in Endon I like with amenity areas and station nearby, however it only has 52 years on the lease. There is not much else in Endon suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a lease with such few years left?
If you need a home loan the shortness of the lease may be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you can request that they start the process of the extension and pass 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.

What makes a Endon lease unmortgageable?
Leasehold conveyancing in Endon is not unique. All leases are individual and legal mistakes in the legal wording can sometimes mean that certain provisions are missing. For example, if your lease is missing any of the following, it could be defective:
Maintenance charge proportions which don’t add up to the correct percentage Clauses dealing with recovering service charges for expenditure on the building or common parts.
A defective lease can cause issues when trying to sell a property primarily because it impacts on the ability to obtain a mortgage on the property. Nationwide Building Society, Leeds Building Society, and Platform Home Loans Ltd all have express requirements when it comes to what is expected in a lease. Where a lender has been advised by their lawyers that the lease is defective they may refuse to grant the mortgage, forcing the purchaser to withdraw.

If a Endon lease has no more than eighty years it will affect the marketability of the apartment. Check with your mortgage company that they are willing to to proceed given the lease term. A short lease means that you will most likely need a lease extension at some point and you need to have some idea of what this would cost.
