My partner and I are only a couple days away from an exchange on a flat in Harlech and my parents have sent the 10% deposit to my lawyer.

I am advised that, in also acting for the bank he must advise them that the balance of the purchase price is not just from me.

The estate agent advised me not to tell my solicitor about this side-deal as it will put at risk my mortgage with the bank. Is this normal?.

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%.
