Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the valuer when asked. The developer will be required to start the process by downloading the form and completing it. The form will therefore need to be available for the valuer at the time of his or her site visit.

I am purchasing a new build house in King's Cross with a loan from Lloyds TSB Bank. The developers refused to budge the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The estate agent advised me not disclose to my conveyancer about the side-deal as it may put at risk my mortgage with Lloyds TSB Bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

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%.

Due to the guidance of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in King's Cross in advance of instructing conveyancers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. My surveyor has said that some mortgage companies tend refuse to grant a mortgage on such a home.
