I'm purchasing a new build house in Grangetown with the aid of help to buy. The developers would not move on the price so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings 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.
