My wife and I are soon to exchange buying a property in Penshaw but as a result of damage from the recent storms I have managed to agree recompense from the seller of £3k by way of a reduction in the price. This was going to be dealt with as part of the conveyancing process but Aldermore are not allowing this. Why were they notified?
Your solicitor that is on the Aldermore approved list is obliged to inform Aldermore of any variations to the sale price. If you prohibit your property lawyer to disclose the reduction to Aldermore then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Aldermore and you would have to appoint a new conveyancer for your conveyancing in Penshaw.
