My brother-in-law has suggested I instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Flitwick. I I am struggling to find out if they are accepted on the Norwich and Peterborough Building Society approved list of lawyers. Can you assist?
You should phone your conveyancer and ask them if they can act for the lender. Otherwise you should call Norwich and Peterborough Building Society who may be able to confirm.
I'm purchasing a new build house in Flitwick benefiting from help to buy. The sellers would not reduce the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The property agent advised me not disclose to my lawyer about the extras as it would affect my mortgage with Birmingham Midshires. 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.
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 am looking for a flat up to £245,000 and found one near me in Flitwick I like with amenity areas and transport links nearby, however it's only got 51 years on the lease. There is not much else in Flitwick in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?

If the existing owner has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you may ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.
