I'm buying a new build house in Moston benefiting from help to buy. The developers would not budge the price so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The property agent suggested that I not inform my solicitor about the side-deal as it will put at risk my mortgage with the lender. Is this normal?.
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.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and found one near me in Moston I like with open areas and railway links nearby, however it only has 49 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Moston in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?
If you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may 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 property for a minimum of 2 years you may request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this.
How do I use your search facility to select a conveyancing practitioner in Moston on the panel for my mortgage?
Step one is to pick a mortgage company such as Barclays , Coventry Building Society or Alliance & Leicester then choose your preferred area for instance Moston. Conveyancing organisations in Moston and beyond will then be shown.
I today plan to offer on a house that appears to be perfect, at a reasonable figure which is making it more attractive. I have since been informed that it's a leasehold rather than freehold. I am assuming that there are issues purchasing a leasehold house in Moston. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been appointed. Will they explain the issues?
Most houses in Moston are freehold and not leasehold. In this scenario it’s worth having a local conveyancer who is familiar with the area can help the conveyancing process. It is clear that you are purchasing in Moston so you should seriously consider looking for a Moston conveyancing practitioner and check that they are used to transacting on leasehold houses. First you will need to check the number of years remaining. As a lessee you will not be at liberty to do whatever you want with the house. The lease will likely included provisions such as obtaining the freeholder’sconsent to conduct changes to the property. You may also be required to pay a contribution towards the upkeep of the estate where the property is part of an estate. Your solicitor should advise you fully on all the issues.
