I am buying a new build house in Wooburn Green with a mortgage from Alliance & Leicester . The builders would not reduce the amount so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The house builders rep suggested that I not reveal to my conveyancer about this deal as it could jeopardize my mortgage with the bank. Should I keep quiet?.

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%.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £235,500 and identified one close by in Wooburn Green I like with a park and railway links nearby, however it only has 61 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Wooburn Green in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?

Should you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be an issue. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.
