I am purchasing a new build house in Pocklington with a mortgage from Birmingham Midshires. The sellers refused to reduce the price so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The house builders rep told me not inform my solicitor about the deal as it could put at risk my loan with Birmingham Midshires. 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%.
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.

Myself and my husband have recently had an offer agreed on a apartment and had an appointment on Monday with Nationwide for the mortgage. They warned us that when it comes to choosing a solicitor that unless they are on their approved panel of conveyancers then we will have to pay out an extra fee of about two hundred pounds. This is because they would then have to instruct a solicitor to act on their behalf as well as the one we appoint for ourselves and we assume responsibility for their costs. I have asked Nationwide to send me with a list so I can obtain quotes only from their approved conveyancers but was told they dont have such a list to hand over. Is there a list online?
You should ask Nationwide what their criteria for panel membership is for a conveyancer.Thereafter ask the lawyer of your choice whether they fit that criteria and have they acted on mortgages for Nationwide before. If the answer to those is yes, then just double check with Nationwide. Another option is to use our search tool and we should be able to identify a lawyer in Pocklington on the approved list for Nationwide.
