I am due to exchange buying a property in Prestwich but as a result of wreckage from the recent storms I have managed to agree compensation from the vendor in the sum of £3k in the form of a adjustment in the price. This was going to be dealt with as part of the conveyancing process yet Virgin Money are not allowing this. Should they have been involved?
Your solicitor that is on the Virgin Money approved list is obliged to disclose to Virgin Money of any amendments to the sale price. If you were to refuse your property lawyer 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 conveyancer for your conveyancing in Prestwich.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor already. Are they able to advise? You need to enquire of your lawyer before you do anything.

Even though your last Prestwich conveyancing lawyer is no longer around you can review your lease to see if you are permitted to let out the premises. The accepted inference is that if the deeds are silent, subletting is permitted. Quite often there is a prerequisite that you are obliged to obtain consent via your landlord or other appropriate person prior to subletting. The net result is that you cannot sublet without prior consent. Such consent is not allowed to be unreasonably refused ore delayed. If your lease does not allow you to sublet you should ask your landlord if they are willing to waive this restriction.
