I'm purchasing a new build house in Merseyside benefiting from help to buy. The builders refused to move on the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The estate agent advised me not to tell my conveyancer about this side-deal as it would impact my loan with the bank. Is this normal?.
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%.

Not every individual in the law firm must be listed by the regulator. As long there is a manager qualified to 'oversee' the conveyancing, the actual day-to-day activity can be conducted by unqualified staff.
