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.

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.
