I am purchasing a new build house in Shildon benefiting from help to buy. The builders would not reduce the amount so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The estate agent told me not disclose to my lawyer about this side-deal as it may adversely affect my loan with Skipton Building Society. 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%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
