Me and my partner are due to exchange buying a property in Dolwyddelan but as a consequence of wreckage from some water damage at the property I have managed to agree compensation from the owner in the sum of £2k in the form of a deduction in the price. This was going to be dealt with as part of amending the contract but Virgin Money are not allowing this. Should they have been informed?
Any solicitor that is on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel is duty bound to inform Virgin Money of any amendments to the purchase price. If you prohibit your lawyer to disclose the price change to Virgin Money then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Virgin Money and you would have to appoint a new conveyancing practitioner for your conveyancing in Dolwyddelan.

I've recently bought a leasehold house in Dolwyddelan. Do I have any liability for service charges for periods before my ownership?
Where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous lessee and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. Strange as it may seem, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. It is an essential part of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to be sure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.
If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).
