I am purchasing my first flat in High Peak with the aid of help to buy. The builders would not move on 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%.

Is the landlord entitled to charge an administration fee for a leasehold conveyance in High Peak?
High Peak conveyancing on leasehold maisonettes more often than not requires the purchaser’s lawyer submitting questions for the landlord to answer. Although the landlord is not legally bound to answer these enquiries the majority will be content to do so. They may charge a reasonable charge for answering questions or supplying documentation. There is no set fee. The average fee for the information that you are referring to is £350, in some transactions it exceeds £800. The management information fee demanded by the landlord must be accompanied by a summary of rights and obligations in relation to administration charges, without which the charge is not strictly payable. In reality one has no choice but to pay whatever is demanded should you wish to sell the property.

Any buyer’s lawyer should check the registered entries and require evidence to establish the change of name for instance marriage certificates.
