We are soon to complete buying a property in Sheringham but as a consequence of damage from some water damage at the property I have was able negotiate reparation from the seller of six thousand pounds in the form of a adjustment in the price. I had intended this to be addressed as part of a side agreement but Skipton will not permit this. Should they have been informed?
Your property lawyer being on the Skipton conveyancing panel is obliged to disclose to Skipton of any changes to the purchase price. If you prohibit your solicitor to report the price change to Skipton then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Skipton and you would have to appoint a new conveyancer for your conveyancing in Sheringham.

How does conveyancing in Sheringham differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Sheringham come to us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is finished. This is because new home sellers in Sheringham usually purchase the land, 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 property lawyers 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. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Sheringham or who has acted in the same development.
I opted to have a survey done on a house in Sheringham in advance of appointing lawyers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. The surveyor advised that some lenders tend not grant a loan on a flying freehold house.
It varies from the lender to lender. HSBC has different requirements from Birmingham Midshires. If you e-mail us we can investigate further with the relevant mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Sheringham.
