Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there exists lots of opportunity for friction between you and others involved in the transaction. For example, the vendor, property agent and sometimes your bank. Selecting a law firm for your conveyancing in Pentonville an important selection as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the SOLE party in the legal process whose role it is to act in your legal interests and to keep you safe.
Sometimes a third party with a vested interest will attempt to convince you that you should follow their advice. For instance, the estate agent may claim to be assisting by suggesting your lawyer is dragging his heels. Or your financial adviser may tell you to do take action that is contrary to your lawyers recommendation. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties in the conveyancing process.

I'm buying my first flat in Pentonville with a mortgage from Platform Home Loans Ltd. The builders would not reduce the amount so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The sale representative advised me not to tell my lawyer about the side-deal as it could impact my mortgage with the lender. Is this normal?.
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%.
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.
