I am buying a new build house in Knowle with a mortgage from Barclays Direct. The builders would not move on the price so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The house builders rep told me not inform my conveyancer about the deal as it could impact my loan with Barclays Direct. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

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 am looking for a flat up to £305k and found one close by in Knowle I like with amenity areas and railway links nearby, however it only has 61 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Knowle suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?

Should you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be problematic. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.
