I'm buying my first flat in Walton on the Naze with a mortgage from Lloyds TSB Bank. The developers would not budge the amount so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The estate agent suggested that I not inform my conveyancer about the extras as it could affect my loan with the lender. 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%.

I have been on the look out for a flat up to £235,500 and identified one near me in Walton on the Naze I like with a park and transport links nearby, however it's only got 49 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Walton on the Naze suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be an issue. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you may request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.
My fiance and I are buying a four room apartmentin Walton on the Naze with a mortgage from a lender. We would like to retain our lawyer in Walton on the Naze however our lender inform us now that he's not listed on their "panel". It seems we have little choice but to instruct one of the our mortgage company panel solicitors or stay with our Walton on the Naze solicitor and pay for one of their panel ones to represent them. We feel as though this is unjust; Can we not simply insist that our lender use our Walton on the Naze lawyer?
Unfortunately,no. The mortgage company mortgage issued is subject to conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the lender's conveyancing panel. in the past, most banks had large numbers of law firms on their panels, including most conveyancing solicitors in Walton on the Naze : a mortgagee could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for your mortgage company.
