I am purchasing my first flat in Newton Heath benefiting from help to buy. The builders would not move on the amount so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The sale representative advised me not disclose to my solicitor about this side-deal as it may put at risk my loan with Accord Mortgages Ltd. Should I keep quiet?.

Being a tenant I am liable for a maintenance fee for my property in Newton Heath. As a result of personal circumstances I fell into arrears with payments. I negotiated a settlement schedule but there is still approximately £3000 remaining to be paid.
I now wish to sell and I am panicking this may jeopardize the sale if I have to pay off the arrears first. Do I have to settle before - is this viable?
