My wife and I are due to exchange on the purchase of a house in Arnold but as a consequence of damage from some water damage at the property I have was able negotiate reparation from the seller in the sum of six thousand pounds in the form of a deduction in the price. I had intended this to be dealt with as part of the conveyancing process however HSBC are not allowing this. Should they have been notified?
Your property lawyer that is on the HSBC approved list is duty bound to disclose to HSBC of any variations to the purchase price. If you were to refuse your solicitor to notify the price change to HSBC then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, HSBC and you would have to appoint a new property lawyer for your conveyancing in Arnold.

I'm the only recipient of my late mum's estate and I have everything in my name now, including the house in Arnold. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in December. I want to move. I understand that there is a CML six month 'rule', meaning my property ownership could be regarded the same way as if I'd bought the house in December. Is the property unsalable for six months?
The CML handbook mandates conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you might be affected by that. Most mortgage companies would take a sensible view as this clause principally exists to pick up on the purchase and immediately sell or the wholesaling and assigning of properties.
About to purchase maisonette in Arnold. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Barclays conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Arnold conveyancing practitioner is on the Barclays conveyancing panel.
