My wife and I are soon to exchange buying a house in Miles Platting but as a consequence of damage from the recent storms I have managed to agree reparation from the owner of £2k by way of a adjustment in the price. This was going to be addressed as part of a side agreement yet Coventry BS are not allowing this. Why were they notified?
Your solicitor being on the Coventry BS approved list is required to disclose to Coventry BS of any variations to the purchase price. If you were to refuse your conveyancer to report the reduction to Coventry BS then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Coventry BS and you would have to appoint a new conveyancing practitioner for your conveyancing in Miles Platting.

I had intended to instruct a property lawyer in Miles Platting for our house purchase. Our broker has since advised us that our mortgage lenders Santander won't deal with them. Surely this is unduly restrictive?
Mortgage Companies tend to restrict either the type or the volume of conveyancing solicitors on their approved list of lawyers. Typical examples of such criteria being that a law practice must not be a sole practitioner. As well as restricting the type of firm, some have decided to limit the number of firms they permit to represent them. You should note that Santander have no responsibility for the quality of advice provided by any member of Santander Conveyancer Panel.
