I'm buying a new build house in New Malden with a loan from Bank of Scotland. The developers would not budge the amount so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The house builders rep told me not to tell my lawyer about the extras as it will affect my mortgage with Bank of Scotland. Should I keep quiet?.

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%.
