We are soon to exchange buying a house in Lindfield but as a result of damage from the recent storms I have managed to agree recompense from the current proprietors in the sum of six thousand pounds in the form of a reduction in the price. This was going to be addressed as part of amending the contract but Skipton will not agree to this. Should they have been notified?
The solicitor being on the Skipton conveyancing panel is obliged to advise Skipton of any variations to the purchase price. If you prohibit your property lawyer to notify the reduction to Skipton then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Skipton and you would have to appoint a new conveyancing practitioner for your conveyancing in Lindfield.
Do I need to attend the offices of the solicitor to sign the mortgage deed? If so, I will choose one who does conveyancing in Lindfield so that I can attend their offices if necessary.
