I'm buying a new build house in Carshalton with the aid of help to buy. The builders would not budge the price so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The property agent told me not reveal to my solicitor about the extras as it may put at risk my mortgage with the lender. 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.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
