I'm buying a new build house in Gunnislake with a loan from Bank of Ireland. The developers refused to reduce the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The house builders rep told me not disclose to my solicitor about the deal as it may adversely affect 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.
Due to the encouragement of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Gunnislake before appointing lawyers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. My surveyor has said that some lenders tend refuse to issue a mortgage on such a property.
It depends who your proposed lender is. Bank of Scotland has different instructions for example to Birmingham Midshires. If you call us we can look into this further via the relevant bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Gunnislake. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.
My partner and I have an offer in principle from The Royal Bank of Scotland who indicated that they will loan up to £218k. At what point do I need to appoint a solicitor for conveyancing? Gunnislake is where we are .
You can instruct a conveyancer now so that the property lawyer can open the file so they can commence the AML checks etc. Once you wish them to commence work you will be asked for a payment on account usually approximately £175. That would normally be once you have the mortgage offer and survey results, however if you wish to expedite matters you can get going quicker even though you may be risking some money.
