I am soon to complete buying a house in Newton Longville but as a result of damage from the recent storms I have managed to agree reparation from the current proprietors in the sum of six thousand pounds taking the form of a reduction in the price. I had intended this to be addressed as part of the conveyancing process however UBS are not allowing this. Why were they informed?
The solicitor being on a UBS conveyancing panel is required to advise UBS of any variations to the purchase price. If you were to refuse your conveyancer to notify the price change to UBS then they would have to discontinue acting for you.
