I'm buying a new build house in Tower Hill with a loan from Barnsley Building Society. The developers would not budge the amount so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The property agent told me not inform my lawyer about this extras as it would jeopardize my mortgage with Barnsley Building Society. Is this normal?.
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%.

As with many service providers, often suggestions from family and friends can be worth their weight in gold. Yet there are numerous players in a conveyancing matter; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage companies might all suggest solicitors to retain. On occasion these solicitors might be known to one of the organisations as one of the best in their field, but sometimes there exists a financial incentive behind the endorsement. You are at liberty to select your own conveyancer. You need to be aware that some mortgage providers specify a panel list of conveyancers you are obliged to use for the lender aspect of your conveyancing.
