I'm buying a new build house in Selly Oak with a loan from Clydesdale. The developers would not budge the amount so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The sale representative told me not reveal to my lawyer about this side-deal as it may impact my mortgage with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
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 ground for flat up to £235,500 and identified one close by in Selly Oak I like with amenity areas and transport links nearby, the downside is that it only has 49 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Selly Oak suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a short lease?
If you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease will likely be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.
Taking into account that I am about to spend hundreds of thousands of pounds on a garden flat in Selly Oak I wish to talk to a conveyancer concerning thehome move in advance of appointing the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?
