I'm buying a new build house in Pangbourne with the aid of help to buy. The sellers would not reduce the price so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The sale representative suggested that I not inform my lawyer about this extras as it will affect my mortgage with Chelsea Building Society. 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%.

What is the distinction between surveying and conveyancing in Pangbourne?
Conveyancing - in Pangbourne or elsewhere - is the legal term given to transferring legal title of property from one person to another. It involves the investigation of the title. Whether buying or selling, you should be aware of anything affecting the property such as proposals by government departments, illegal buildings, or outstanding rates. The conveyancer should conduct the appropriate searches and inquiries on the property. Surveying relates to the structure of a property itself. A surveyor will look at a house, flat and any outbuildings you’re intending to buy and will help you find out about the condition of the building and, if there are problems, give you a powerful reason for reducing the price down or asking the seller to remedy the defects prior to you move in.
