My husband and I are acquiring a brand new duplex in Hoole and my solicitor is informing me that she has to the mortgage company to reveal incentives from the seller. I am under pressure to exchange contracts and I have no desire to prolong the conveyancing. Is my lawyer right?
You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your conveyancing practitioner. A precondition to being on a mortgage company panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.

I am looking for a flat up to £235,500 and found one close by in Hoole I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 49 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Hoole suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a mortgage that many years will likely be problematic. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you could ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this.
