I'm buying a new build house in Muswell Hill with a mortgage from Barclays . The builders would not reduce the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The property agent told me not to tell my conveyancer about the extras as it would adversely affect my mortgage with the bank. 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%.
