Any local conveyancer would know this is not the case.

I am buying a new build house in Brentford with a mortgage from Leeds Building Society. The builders refused to budge the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The sale representative suggested that I not disclose to my conveyancer about this deal as it may affect my mortgage with the lender. Is this normal?.

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%.

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.
