I am buying a new build house in Llandudno Junction with a mortgage from Barclays . The developers would not budge the amount so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The house builders rep suggested that I not reveal to my solicitor about this deal as it would adversely affect my mortgage with the bank. Should I keep quiet?.
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%.

I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and found one round the corner in Llandudno Junction I like with a park and station nearby, however it only has 61 years on the lease. There is not much else in Llandudno Junction suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?
Should you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.
