We are soon to complete on the purchase of a property in Stansted but as a consequence of damage from the recent storms I have managed to agree recompense from the owner in the sum of £3k taking the form of a deduction in the price. I had intended this to be dealt with as part of the conveyancing process however Yorkshire BS will not permit this. Should they have been informed?
The lawyer that is on a Yorkshire BS approved list is duty bound to advise Yorkshire BS of any amendments to the sale price. If you were to refuse your property lawyer to disclose the reduction to Yorkshire BS then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Yorkshire BS and you would have to appoint a new conveyancer for your conveyancing in Stansted.
