I am buying my first flat in Barrow Upon Soar with a loan from The Royal Bank of Scotland. The builders would not move on the price so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The sale representative suggested that I not disclose to my conveyancer about the deal as it could affect my mortgage with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
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.

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.
