I am purchasing my first flat in Winkleigh benefiting from help to buy. The builders would not reduce the price so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead.

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.

My partner and I hope to acquire our first home in Winkleigh. Conveyancing practitioner already appointed. The mortgage adviser advised that a survey is not necessary as the house is just 20 yrs old.

You would be best advised to have a Home Buyer's Report. Given the premises was built over a decade ago the property will not benefit from a warranty, so you don't want to take a risk. Where a property of this age shows no signs of problems a Home Buyer's report may be enough. The report should highlight any apparent problems and recommend further investigation if appropriate. If there are any signs of problems obtain a comprehensive Building Survey from the beginning.
