Putting down deposit before applying for mortgage

    I’ll be applying for a mortgage next month as I need a full 6 months of clean saving. There’s a development I love that’s nearly gone, so I’m considering putting a booking deposit down.

    Is this something that can be done on the developer’s side with AIP, and how will the bank look at potentially taking from savings to do so?

    If it’s more trouble than it’s worth I’ll just leave it.
