I am purchasing a brand new flat in Cardiff Bay and my lawyer is informing me that she has to the bank to disclose incentives from the developer. The Estate Agents are hassling me to exchange and I don't want to delay the conveyancing. is my lawyer playing by the book?
You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your solicitor. A precondition to being on a mortgage company panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook provisions. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.

In today’s world there are duplicates made of almost everything, and your conveyancer will know precisely where to find all the appropriate paperwork so you can buy or sell your property without any difficulty. If duplicates are not available, your solicitor can put in place insurance or indemnities against future claims on the premises.
I am purchasing a new build house in Cardiff Bay with the aid of help to buy. The builders would not budge the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The estate agent advised me not inform my lawyer about this side-deal as it may put at risk my mortgage with Virgin Money. Is this normal?.
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%.
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.
