I'm buying a new build house in Sandiacre with a loan from Barclays Direct. The sellers would not reduce the price so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The estate agent advised me not to tell my solicitor about the extras as it would put at risk my mortgage with Barclays Direct. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
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.
I'm remortgaging my current home to a buy to let loan with National Westminster Bank and I will use the rest of the raised equity towards a second house. The neighborhood we are talking about is Sandiacre. Will your solicitors be able to act for the two banks and link together the two deals?
Do use our search tool on this site to be sure that the solicitors are approved by both banks. Assuming that they are the solicitor will be able to tie up the two transactions but you should talk with you lawyer and make clear your expectations and needs.

Our conveyancer has advised that he intends to complete and exchange simultaneously on the sale of our £200,000 maisonette in Sandiacre next Monday. The freeholder has quoted £324 for Landlord’s certificate, insurance certificate and previous years service charge statements. Is the landlord entitled to charge exorbitant fees for a flat conveyance in Sandiacre?
Sandiacre conveyancing on leasehold apartments usually necessitates the buyer’s solicitor sending enquiries for the landlord to answer. Although the landlord is under no legal obligation to respond to these enquiries the majority will be content to do so. They are at liberty to levy a reasonable administration fee for answering enquiries or supplying documentation. There is no set fee. The average costs for the information that you are referring to is £350, in some transactions it exceeds £800. The management information fee levied by the landlord must be sent together with a synopsis of rights and obligations in relation to administration fees, otherwise the charge is technically not due. In reality you have no choice but to pay whatever is requested of you should you wish to exchange contracts with the buyer.
I inherited a ground floor flat in Sandiacre, conveyancing having been completed half a dozen years ago. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Similar properties in Sandiacre with over 90 years remaining are worth £175,000. The ground rent is £65 invoiced every year. The lease ends on 21st October 2080
With only 58 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £23,800 and £27,400 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.
The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to advice on a more accurate figure in the absence of comprehensive due diligence. You should not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other issues that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward placing reliance on this information without first getting professional advice.
