I'm buying a new build house in Wroxham with a mortgage from Chelsea Building Society. The sellers refused to move on the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of extras instead.

Its a good idea to find out as much as possible regarding the managing agents as they will impact your use and enjoyment of the property. As the proprietor of a leasehold property you are frequently at the mercy of the managing agents from a financial perspective and when it comes to daily issues like the tidiness of the common parts.
