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%.

I am looking for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and found one close by in West Hampstead I like with amenity areas and station nearby, however it's only got 61 years on the lease.
