Bank of Ireland have specific requirements as set out in the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook. As of 6/2/2019, the requirements read as follows :

I am buying my first flat in Whitefield with a mortgage from Barnsley Building Society. The sellers would not reduce the amount so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The property agent advised me not disclose to my solicitor about the deal as it would affect my loan with the bank. Should I keep quiet?.

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've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Whitefield is where the house is located. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Whitefield are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Whitefield you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Whitefield may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
