My wife and I are soon to exchange buying a property in Herefordshire but as a result of wreckage from some water damage at the property I have was able negotiate compensation from the seller of £2k by way of a adjustment in the price. This was going to be dealt with as part of a side agreement however Virgin Money will not permit this. Why were they notified?
The solicitor that is on a Virgin Money approved list is required to inform Virgin Money of any amendments to the purchase price. If you were to refuse your lawyer to report the price change to Virgin Money then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Virgin Money and you would have to appoint a new conveyancing practitioner for your conveyancing in Herefordshire.

Planning on purchasing a apartment in Herefordshire. 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 HSBC conveyancing panel.

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 Herefordshire conveyancing practitioner is on the HSBC conveyancing panel.
