Me and my partner are due to complete on the purchase of a property in Epping but as a result of damage from the recent storms I have managed to agree reparation from the current proprietors of £3k taking the form of a reduction in the price. I had intended this to be addressed as part of the conveyancing process however Clydesdale are not allowing this. Should they have been informed?
Any conveyancer being on a Clydesdale approved list is duty bound to advise Clydesdale of any variations to the purchase price. If you were to refuse your solicitor to disclose the reduction to Clydesdale then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Clydesdale and you would have to appoint a new solicitor for your conveyancing in Epping.
