I'm purchasing my first flat in Nafferton with a mortgage from Bank of Ireland. The builders would not budge the amount so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The property agent told me not to tell my lawyer about the side-deal as it could adversely affect my mortgage with Bank of Ireland. Is this normal?.
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.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £305k and identified one near me in Nafferton I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 51 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Nafferton for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a lease with such few years left?
If you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this.
My husband and I are novice buyers - agreed a price, yet the property agent advised that the vendor will only go ahead if we use their recommended conveyancers as they need a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a local conveyancer accustomed to conveyancing in Nafferton
We suspect that the owner is not behind this demand. If they desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a motivated buyer is going to damage their objectives. Contact the vendors directly and explain that (a)you are genuine purchasers (b)you are ready to go, with finances in place © you are chain free (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you will continue to use your preferred Nafferton conveyancing solicitors - as opposed tothose that will earn their estate agent a referral fee or achieve conveyancing targets set by corporate headquarters.
I have just started marketing my ground floor flat in Nafferton. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, however I have just received a half-yearly maintenance charge invoice – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?
It best that you discharge the invoice as normal because all ground rent and maintenance payments should be allotted on completion, so you will be reimbursed by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
