I'm buying my first flat in Bozeat with a loan from Skipton Building Society. The developers would not move on the price so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The property agent told me not reveal to my conveyancer about the deal as it would jeopardize my mortgage with Skipton Building Society. Is this normal?.
