My wife and I are due to exchange on the purchase of a house in Peak District but as a result of wreckage from some water damage at the property I have was able negotiate recompense from the vendor of £2k by way of a reduction in the price. I had intended this to be addressed as part of a side agreement yet RBS are not allowing this. Should they have been informed?
The property lawyer being on the RBS conveyancing panel is obliged to inform RBS of any amendments to the purchase price. If you were to refuse your conveyancer to notify the reduction to RBS then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, RBS and you would have to appoint a new conveyancer for your conveyancing in Peak District.
As someone with no idea as to conveyancing in Peak District what is the number one tip you can impart for the legal transfer of property in Peak District
Not many law firms shout this from the rooftops but conveyancing in Peak District and elsewhere in Derbyshire is an adversarial process. Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there is plenty of opportunity for confrontation between you and others involved in the legal transfer of property. For example, the vendor, estate agent and even potentially the lender. Appointing a solicitor for your conveyancing in Peak District is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONE person in the transaction whose role it is to protect your best interests and to keep you safe.
Every so often a third party with a vested interest may attempt to convince you that it is in your interests to do things their way. For example, the estate agent may claim to be assisting by suggesting your conveyancer is dragging his heels. Or your mortgage broker may advise you to do something that is against your solicitors advice. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties when it comes to the legal transfer of property.
