Me and my partner are due to complete buying a house in Beckenham but as a result of damage from a small fire at the property I have was able negotiate reparation from the current proprietors of six thousand pounds in the form of a reduction in the price. This was going to be dealt with as part of a side agreement however Coventry BS will not permit this. Should they have been informed?
The lawyer that is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel is duty bound to advise Coventry BS of any amendments to the sale price. If you were to refuse your lawyer to report the price change to Coventry BS then they would have to discontinue acting for you.

It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the property from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
