Should a purchaser(s) have an offer accepted on a property marketed by J.R. Hopper & Co., they will need to undertake an AML check. We require this to meet our obligation under AML regulations and it is a legal requirement. We use a specialist third party service, provided by Lifetime Legal, to verify your identity. The cost of these checks is £60 (including VAT) per purchase, payable in advance directly to Lifetime Legal, when an offer is agreed and prior to a sales memorandum being issued. This charge is non-refundable under any circumstances.
The seller has indicated that the affordable housing contribution of £26,000 which is part of the planning permission, may be able to be removed, if you apply for the variance. ''I spoke to North Yorkshire Council about this some time ago and they told me they had decided it was not appropriate to ask for the affordable housing contribution on single dwellings of the size that would be built on the plot. It would just be a matter of applying for a variance on the S106 agreement and this would be dropped’’.
