Me and my partner are soon to exchange buying a property in East and West Horsley but as a consequence of wreckage from the recent storms I have was able negotiate compensation from the seller of £3k by way of a deduction in the price. This was going to be dealt with as part of a side agreement but HSBC are not allowing this. Should they have been notified?
Your solicitor that is on a HSBC approved list is obliged to advise HSBC of any changes to the purchase price. If you were to refuse your lawyer to report the price change to HSBC then they would have to discontinue acting for you.

Unfortunately, as long as it is in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your solicitor is entitled to charge a fee for this. This charge is not set by Virgin Money but by your East and West Horsley property lawyer. Numerous firms on the Virgin Money panel will charge an ‘acting for lender’ fee and others do not.
