We are about to exchange buying a property in Kilgetty but as a consequence of damage from the recent storms I have was able negotiate compensation from the current proprietors in the sum of £3k in the form of a deduction in the price. I had intended this to be dealt with as part of the conveyancing process yet TSB are not allowing this. Why were they involved?

Your property lawyer being on a TSB approved list is required to advise TSB of any variations to the purchase price. If you prohibit your solicitor to report the price change to TSB then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, TSB and you would have to appoint a new property lawyer for your conveyancing in Kilgetty.

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Kilgetty contact us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is finished. This is because house builders in Kilgetty typically purchase the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended.
