I am purchasing my first flat in Pembroke with a mortgage from The Mortgage Works. The developers would not budge the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of extras instead. The sale representative advised me not reveal to my lawyer about the deal as it may put at risk 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.
