I am hoping to complete my purchase in Edgware next Monday.

I'm buying my first flat in Edgware with a mortgage from Chelsea Building Society. The builders would not budge the price so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The property agent advised me not disclose to my conveyancer about the side-deal as it would jeopardize my mortgage with the lender. Should I keep quiet?.
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.

Me and my husband are disposing of a Edgware ground floor flat we inherited some years ago in 2012. I have over 12 years conveyancing knowledge and, although retired, intend to undertake my own legal work. The purchaser's solicitor has informed me that their bank will not allow you to do your own conveyancing mandating that the funds to be sent to a solicitor's bank account.
Mortgage requirements to lawyers from all mainstream lenders specify that If the vendor does not have legal representation the purchaser’s lawyers should check whether the bank needs to be informed so that a decision can be reached as to whether or not they are willing to proceed.
