My wife and I are soon to exchange buying a property in Wembley Park but as a result of damage from a small fire at the property I have managed to agree compensation from the seller of six thousand pounds by way of a adjustment in the price. I had intended this to be addressed as part of amending the contract however Co-operative are not allowing this. Should they have been involved?
Your conveyancer being on a Co-operative approved list is duty bound to inform Co-operative of any changes to the purchase price. If you prohibit your property lawyer to notify the price change to Co-operative then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Co-operative and you would have to appoint a new conveyancing practitioner for your conveyancing in Wembley Park.
Why do I have to pay up front when it comes to conveyancing in Wembley Park?

This will be the total of the cost of the conveyancing searches. When the down payment is payable against the purchase price then this will be needed shortly ahead of exchange of contracts. The final balance that is needed should be sent to your lawyer shortly before completion.

I was advised by numerous property agents in Wembley Park to choose a conveyancer on your site. Is there a financial advantage for Estate Agents to market your services ahead of a competitor’s?
