We are about to complete buying a property in High Peak but as a consequence of wreckage from the recent storms I have agreed compensation from the seller of £3k in the form of a deduction in the price.

Any conveyancing practitioner listed on a mortgage company conveyancing panel is obliged to inform the mortgage company of any changes to the sale figure. If you were to refuse your conveyancer to disclose the reduction to your lender then they would need to refrain from representing you and the bank.
