I have a renovated Edwardian house in Mossley. Conveyancing solicitor acted for me and Aldermore. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw a couple of entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold under the matching address. Is it worth asking Aldermore to clarify?
You need to review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Mossley and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with mortgage companies. You can also enquire as to the position with your conveyancing solicitor who conducted the conveyancing.
I am buying a new build house in Mossley with the aid of help to buy. The developers would not reduce the amount so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The house builders rep told me not to tell my solicitor about the deal as it could affect my loan with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
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%.
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.
