Hi Mrs Wright, thanks for your enquiry. On what basis is the Buyer needing to replace the locks? Al
Thanks for your reply.
A Buyer takes the property in the condition it was on the day Contracts were exchanged, so unless you "damaged" the locks at some point between the exchange and completion day, you have absolutely nothing to worry about. I note you were of course at the property up to the date of completion, but if you did not damage the locks, I would tell the Buyer that you are not willing, and nor are you responsible, for contributing towards their locksmith charges.
It sounds to me that they are just trying it on!
Does that assist? Al
If so, I would be grateful if you could rate my answer in the top right hand corner of your screen. Thanks Al
Thanks! I'm afraid some Buyers do try it on and you are free to ignore their request!
