We are soon to exchange on the purchase of a property in Thornbury but as a result of wreckage from some water damage at the property I have managed to agree compensation from the owner in the sum of six thousand pounds by way of a adjustment in the price. This was going to be addressed as part of amending the contract however Virgin Money are not allowing this. Should they have been involved?

A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need.

There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Your solicitors will transfer the completion advance to the vendor’s solicitors, and once they have received this, you will be able to receive the keys from the selling Agents and start moving into the property. Usually this occurs between 1 and 3pm.
