I'm purchasing my first flat in Brigg with a loan from Alliance & Leicester . The builders would not reduce the price so I negotiated 6k of extras instead.

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.
