As a buyer's agent the practice of asking a financial informarmation does seem it will impact the negotiating power of the buyer. That being said, it is not in my client's best interest to disclose this information to the listing agent. It goes against the fiduciary responsibility I have for my client making it an ethics violation. I had my buyer fill out the form. I am now going to explain in writing what the implications are and have my buyer sign off before I submit this info.
