We are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our home in Folkestone and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was built on contaminated land. Any high street Folkestone conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers are using a factory type conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Folkestone.

I am purchasing my first flat in Folkestone with a mortgage from Barclays Direct. The developers would not budge the amount so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead.

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%.

I decided to have a survey completed on a house in Folkestone prior to instructing lawyers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold overhang to the property. The surveyor advised that some mortgage companies may not give a mortgage on a flying freehold premises.
