My wife and I have a renovated Victorian house in Norton Woodseats. Conveyancing solicitor acted for me and Birmingham Midshires. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are two entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold with the exact same address. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?
You need to assess the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Norton Woodseats and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also check the position with the conveyancing solicitor who conducted the purchase.
I'm buying a new build house in Norton Woodseats with a loan from Godiva Mortgages Ltd. The developers refused to budge 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 the extras as it will jeopardize my mortgage with the bank. 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.
Due to the input of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Norton Woodseats before appointing lawyers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. My surveyor has said that some lenders may not grant a loan on such a premises.
