I am soon to complete buying a house in Sychdyn but as a consequence of damage from the recent storms I have was able negotiate recompense from the vendor in the sum of £2k in the form of a deduction in the price. I had intended this to be dealt with as part of amending the contract but HSBC are not allowing this. Should they have been notified?
Any lawyer that is on a HSBC conveyancing panel is obliged to advise HSBC of any amendments to the purchase price. If you were to refuse your property lawyer to disclose the price change to HSBC then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, HSBC and you would have to appoint a new conveyancing practitioner for your conveyancing in Sychdyn.

I am purchasing a new build house in Sychdyn benefiting from help to buy. The builders would not move on the price so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The sale representative suggested that I not to tell my solicitor about this deal as it may jeopardize my mortgage with Birmingham Midshires. 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.

I acquired a 1 bedroom flat in Sychdyn, conveyancing having been completed 7 years ago. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Similar flats in Sychdyn with over 90 years remaining are worth £195,000. The ground rent is £45 per annum. The lease ceases on 21st October 2084
With just 63 years unexpired the likely cost is going to range between £16,200 and £18,600 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.
The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed due diligence. Do not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other issues that need to be taken into account and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
