Can you explain why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Withernsea costs more?
In summary, leasehold conveyancing in Withernsea and East Yorkshire usually involve more hours of investigation compared to freehold transactions. This includes checking the lease terms, communicating with the landlord concerning the service of applicable notices, obtaining current service charge and management information, obtaining the freeholder’s consents and reviewing management accounts. The obligations on both the landlord and the tenant in the lease need to be studied by the buyer’s conveyancing team and read from beginning to end – no matter how many different leaseholders have owned the lease since it was first entered into.
I am buying a new build house in Withernsea with a mortgage from Chelsea Building Society. The builders refused to move on the price so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The property agent told me not to tell my lawyer about this extras as it will put at risk my loan with Chelsea Building Society. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
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%.
