I happen to be the sole beneficiary of my late mum's will with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Quinton. The Quinton property was put into my name in November. I plan to dispose of the property. I understand that there is a CML 6 month 'rule', meaning my property ownership may be considered the same way as though I had purchased the property in November. Is the property unsalable for six months?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook instructs conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you may be affected by that. many lenders would take a practical view as this obligation is primarily there to capture subsales or the quick reselling of properties.
It is unclear whether my lender requires a lease extension. I have called into my local Quinton bank branch on a couple of occasions and was told it wasn't an issue and they will lend. My Quinton conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they refuse to lend in accordance with their specific requirements. I have no idea who is right.
Provided that the conveyancer is on the bank approved list, they must comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook requirements for the lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.

I am purchasing a new build house in Quinton benefiting from help to buy. The sellers refused to move on the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead.

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.
