I'm buying a new build house in Ottery St Mary with the aid of help to buy. The developers refused to reduce the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The sale representative suggested that I not disclose to my lawyer about the extras as it will put at risk my mortgage with Lloyds TSB 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%.

My husband and I are first time buyers - agreed a price, yet the estate agent told us that the seller will only go ahead if we instruct the agent's recommended lawyers as they need an ‘expedited deal’.

We suspect that the seller is not behind this ultimatum. Should the owner want ‘a quick sale', alienating a serious buyer is not the way to achieve this. Try to communicate with the owners directly and make the point that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you are chain free (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you will continue to appoint your own,trusted Ottery St Mary conveyancing solicitors - not the ones that will give their negotiator at the agency a commission or hit his conveyancing targets demanded by corporate headquarters.
