Our god-son is in the process of securing a new build apartment in Kimbolton with a home loan from Virgin Money. His conveyancer has said that there is a delay in receiving the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. This document is news to me - what is it and who needs sight of it?
The document is intended to provide information to the main parties engaged in the purchase. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the surveyor when asked. The developer will be required to start the process by downloading the form and completing it. The form will therefore need to be available for the valuer at the time of his or her site visit. The form should be sent to the Virgin Money conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.

I am looking for a flat up to £235,500 and found one close by in Kimbolton I like with amenity areas and transport links nearby, however it only has 49 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Kimbolton for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you can request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this.
Taking into account that I am about to part with over three hundred thousand on a garden flat in Kimbolton I wish to have a conversation with the solicitor regarding theconveyancing ahead of instructing the firm. Can this be arranged?
