I am considering applying for a HSBC mortgage for purchase of a new build (under development) in Dorchester with 65 per cent LTV. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for HSBC ?

I am purchasing a new build house in Dorchester with the aid of help to buy. The sellers would not move on the price so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The property agent advised me not inform my solicitor about this deal as it would impact my loan with Aldermore. Should I keep quiet?.

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%.

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.
