I'm purchasing my first flat in Cleator Moor benefiting from help to buy. The builders refused to reduce the amount so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The house builders rep suggested that I not reveal to my solicitor about this side-deal as it may impact my mortgage with the lender. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

Where a lender has been advised by their lawyers that the lease is defective they may refuse to grant the mortgage, obliging the buyer to withdraw.
