Me and my partner are due to complete buying a house in Baschurch but as a consequence of wreckage from some water damage at the property I have managed to agree compensation from the current proprietors of £3k taking the form of a adjustment in the price. This was going to be dealt with as part of amending the contract but Principality are not allowing this. Why were they notified?
Any lawyer that is on the Principality conveyancing panel is duty bound to advise Principality of any amendments to the sale price.

Do you have any advice for leasehold conveyancing in Baschurch with the intention of speeding up the sale process?
- Much of the delay in leasehold conveyancing in Baschurch can be bypassed if you get in touch lawyers the minute your agents start advertising the property and ask them to collate the leasehold information which will be required by the buyers’ solicitors. If you have had any disputes with your landlord or managing agents it is essential that these are settled before the property is put on the market. The buyers and their solicitors will be concerned about purchasing a flat where there is an ongoing dispute. You will have to accept that you will have to discharge any arrears of service charge or settle the dispute prior to completion of the sale. It is therefore preferable to have any dispute settled prior to the contract papers being issued to the buyers’ solicitors. You will still have to reveal particulars of the dispute to the buyers, but it is better to present the dispute as historic rather than ongoing. In the event that you altered the property did you need the Landlord’s consent? Have you, for example laid down wooden flooring? Most leases in Baschurch state that internal structural changes or addition of wooden flooring calls for a licence from the Landlord acquiescing to such works. If you dont have the paperwork in place do not contact the landlord without checking with your conveyancer in advance. Some Baschurch leases require Licence to Assign from the landlord. If this applies to your lease, you should notify your estate agents to make sure that the purchasers obtain financial (bank) and professional references. The bank reference will need to confirm that the buyers are able to meet the annual service charge and the actual amount of the service charge should be quoted in the bank’s letter. You will therefore need to provide your estate agents with the actual amount of the service charge so that they can pass this information on to the purchasers or their lawyers. You may think that you are aware of the number of years remaining on your lease but it would be wise to double-check by asking your conveyancers. A purchaser's conveyancer will not be happy to advise their client to proceed with the purchase of a leasehold property the lease term is less than 75 years. In the circumstances it is essential at an early stage that you consider whether the lease term requires a lease extension. If it does, contact your solicitors before you put your premises on the market for sale.
