My wife and I are due to exchange on the purchase of a property in Maryland but as a result of wreckage from a small fire at the property I have managed to agree reparation from the vendor in the sum of six thousand pounds in the form of a reduction in the price. I had intended this to be dealt with as part of amending the contract however UBS are not allowing this. Why were they approached?
Any conveyancing practitioner that is on a UBS conveyancing panel is required to disclose to UBS of any changes to the purchase price. If you were to refuse your property lawyer to disclose the price change to UBS then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, UBS and you would have to appoint a new conveyancing practitioner for your conveyancing in Maryland.

Intending to buy a apartment in Maryland. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Maryland conveyancing practitioner is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel.
