Deed of Variation - Freehold
I am in the process of selling my house but my buyers solicitors have dragged it out to the point my mortgage offer expires in a week. I have a freehold with a management charge but my buyers solicitors are insisting I pay for a deed of variation. She is a cash buyer but they are arguing she needs it in case she sells the house on to someone with a mortgage. Both they and my estate agent say I have to pay for it but my solicitor says no as the benefit rests with the buyer. I have told my solicitor that the cost of me losing my mortgage is greater than a deed of variation but they are not responding and I’m running out of time. Any views appreciated.
