I'm purchasing a new build house in Merthyr Tydfil with a mortgage from Chelsea Building Society. The builders would not move on the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The house builders rep told me not to tell my conveyancer about this deal as it may affect my loan with the bank. 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.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in two weeks back in what should have been a quick, chain free conveyancing. Merthyr Tydfil is the location of the property. Can you offer any guidance?
Flying freeholds in Merthyr Tydfil are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Merthyr Tydfil you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Merthyr Tydfil may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
