I am buying a new build house in Darley Abbey with a loan from Barclays Direct. The developers would not reduce the price so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The estate agent told me not reveal to my lawyer about the deal as it may adversely affect my loan with the lender. 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.
