About to place a bid on a leasehold apartment in Honiton. The estate agents tell me that it is standard for flats in Honiton to have less than 75 years unexpired on the lease. I am expecting a mortgage with Platform. Is this going to be a problem if the lease has 70 years remaining.

Most leasehold conveyancing experts should be able to deal with a lease extension. if you are securing a mortgage then your lender may insist that the lease be extended before competition. Platform have specific requirements as set out in the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook in relation to minimum unexpired lease terms. As of 23/1/2021 the requirements read as follows :

70 years unexpired at application, 30 years at the end of the mortgage term, except where the mortgage application is pursuant to Platform's participation in the Government's Help to Buy Shared Equity scheme, in which case (a) the unexpired lease term must not be less than 250 years for new-build houses and not less than 125 years for new-build flats and (b) ground rent must be reasonable at all times and any escalation must be linked to RPI (Retail Price Index) or a similar index.

I'm purchasing a new build house in Honiton with the aid of help to buy. The builders refused to budge the amount so I negotiated 6k of extras instead.

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.

Am I better off to appoint a Honiton conveyancing solicitor who is local to the property I am hoping to buy? I have an old university friend who can execute the legal formalities however they are based 400miles drive away.

The benefit of a local Honiton conveyancing practice is that you can pop in to execute paperwork, deliver your ID and apply pressure on them where appropriate. They will also have local knowledge which is a bonus. However it's more important to get someone that will do a good and efficient job. If you know people who instructed your friend and they were content that must outweigh using an unfamiliar Honiton conveyancing lawyer just because they are Honiton based.
