I am purchasing a new build house in Yarm with a mortgage from The Royal Bank of Scotland. The builders refused to reduce the price so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The estate agent told me not to tell my solicitor about this side-deal as it will adversely affect my mortgage 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.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
