Reservation Fee - refundable on exchange

A reservation fee, refundable on exchange, will be payable by the Buyer to Andrew Grant Sales Limited prior to issuing the Memorandum of Sale and marking the property as Sold Subject to Contract. This fee will be reimbursed upon Exchange of contracts.

The fee will be retained by Andrew Grant Sales Ltd to cover costs in the event the Buyer withdraws from the purchase or doesn't Exchange within 6 months of the fee being received other than for any of the following reasons:   

1. Any significant material issues highlighted in a survey that were not evident or drawn to the attention of you the buyer prior to the Memorandum of Sale being issued.
2. Serious and material defect in the seller’s legal title. 
3. Local search revealing a matter that has a material adverse effect on the market value of the property that was previously undeclared and not in the public domain.  
4. The vendor withdrawing the property from sale.

The reservation fee levels are as follows:
an agreed offer under £500,000 will be £750 inclusive of vat
an agreed offer between £500,000 and £1,000,000 will be £2,000 inclusive of vat

The reservation fee is payable upon acceptance by the vendor of an offer from the buyer and a positive completion of an assessment of the buyer’s financial status and ability to proceed. Once the reservation fee has been paid, any renegotiation of the price stated in the memorandum of sale for any reason not covered in points 1 to 4 above will lead to the reservation fee being retained. A further fee will be levied on any subsequent reduced offer that is accepted by the vendor. This further fee will be subject to the same conditions that prevail for all reservation fees outlined above. 

Should a buyer’s financial position regarding the funding of the property prove to be fundamentally different from that declared by the buyer when the Memorandum of Sale was completed, then the Vendor has the right to withdraw from the sale and the reservation fee retained. For example, where the buyer declares themselves as a cash buyer but are in fact relying on an unsecured sale of their property.
