I am purchasing a new build house in Helston with the aid of help to buy. The builders refused to move on the price so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The property agent told me not reveal to my conveyancer about this side-deal as it could jeopardize my mortgage 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.
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.
Do I need to be concerned that brokers that I am dealing with are recommending a nationwide conveyancing firm as opposed to a local Helston conveyancing practice?
As is the case with many service providers, often input from family and friends can be worth their weight in gold. But there are many parties with a keen interest in a conveyancing deal; estate agents, financial adviser and lenders may recommend conveyancers to choose. On occasion these conveyancers might be known to one of the organisations as one of the best in their field, but occasionally there is an underlying financial incentive behind the recommendation. You have the right to choose your preferred conveyancer. You need to be aware that some lenders operate an approved list of solicitors you have to use for the lender related work in your home move.
