I am buying a new build house in Oxfordshire with a mortgage from National Westminster Bank. The developers would not budge the price so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The property agent advised me not inform my lawyer about the deal as it would adversely affect my mortgage with the lender. Is this normal?.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
