Me and my partner are due to complete buying a house in Dolwyddelan but as a consequence of wreckage from some water damage at the property I have managed to agree recompense from the vendor of £2k by way of a reduction in the price. I had intended this to be addressed as part of amending the contract but Co-operative will not agree to this. Why were they informed?
Any lawyer that is on a Co-operative approved list is duty bound to disclose to Co-operative of any amendments to the purchase price. If you prohibit your conveyancer to notify the reduction to Co-operative then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Co-operative and you would have to appoint a new property lawyer for your conveyancing in Dolwyddelan.
