My relative advised me that if I am purchasing in Helston I should carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. Can you explain what the purpose of this search is?

This is a search is usually included in the estimate for your Helston conveyancing searches. It is a large document of more than thirty pages, listing and detailing significant information about Helston around the property and the people living there. It incorporates an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the Helston Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the demographics of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average Property Price, Crime statistics, Helston Education with maps and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful information concerning Helston.

Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to my house are lost. The conveyancers who dealt with the conveyancing in Helston 5 years ago are no longer around. What do I do?

Assuming the title is registered the information relating to your proprietorship will be recorded by the Land Registry under a Title Number. It is possible to conduct a search at the Land Registry, identify your house and get current copies of the property title for less than a fiver. Where the title is Leasehold then the Land Registry will in most cases hold a file duplicate of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be ordered for twenty pounds.

I'm purchasing my first flat in Helston with a loan from National Westminster Bank. The builders refused to move on the amount so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The estate agent advised me not to tell my solicitor about the side-deal as it could impact my mortgage with the lender. Should I keep quiet?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder 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 have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and identified one round the corner in Helston I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 61 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Helston suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?

If you require a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be an issue. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you can request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.
