Me and my partner are due to exchange buying a property in Keswick but as a consequence of damage from the recent storms I have managed to agree reparation from the current proprietors in the sum of six thousand pounds in the form of a reduction in the price. I had intended this to be addressed as part of the conveyancing process however Virgin Money will not permit this. Should they have been involved?
Any property lawyer that is on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel is obliged to inform Virgin Money of any amendments to the sale price. If you prohibit your solicitor to disclose the reduction to Virgin Money then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Virgin Money and you would have to appoint a new property lawyer for your conveyancing in Keswick.

Set out below is a sample of a few leasehold new build questions that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Keswick
The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? Please supply a car parking plan. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company?
