I am purchasing a new build house in Polperro with the aid of help to buy. The builders refused to reduce the price so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The sale representative told me not to tell my conveyancer about the extras as it would impact my mortgage with Godiva Mortgages Ltd. 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.
I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and identified one close by in Polperro I like with a park and railway links in the vicinity, however it only has 52 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Polperro for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a lease with such few years left?
If you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be problematic. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you may ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this.
I am employed by a reputable estate agent office in Polperro where we have witnessed a few flat sales jeopardised due to leases having less than 80 years remaining. I have received inconsistent advice from local Polperro conveyancing solicitors. Could you confirm whether the seller of a flat can initiate the lease extension process for the buyer?
Provided that the seller has owned the lease for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to commence the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. The benefit of this is that the buyer can avoid having to sit tight for 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment needs to be completed before, or at the same time as completion of the disposal of the property.
An alternative approach is to agree the lease extension with the freeholder either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the buyer.
I purchased a basement flat in Polperro, conveyancing having been completed November 2007. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Similar flats in Polperro with a long lease are worth £206,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 invoiced annually. The lease ends on 21st October 2086
You have 67 years left to run the likely cost is going to span between £10,500 and £12,000 plus professional fees.
