I am purchasing a newly constructed flat in Ongar and my conveyancer is advising me that she is duty bound to the bank to reveal incentives from the developer. The Estate Agents are hassling me to exchange and I would rather not delay matters. Is my lawyer right?

The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.
