My vendor lied pre contract exchange & I've spent money what can I do?
I agreed to buy a property based on it having 97 years on the lease and 2 parking spaces. The 97 years I was told by the agent on at least 2 occasions, the 2 parking spaces was on the downloadable internet details from mid July through to mid August (during which time there was a price reduction so plenty of time for the vendor to sign these off I would have thought). It turns out that the lease is 90 years and there is only 1 parking space. The agent claimed he acted in good faith as that is what the vendor told him. I have reduced my offer by 5K to reflect the change to the properties value but the vendor won't budge; I am not prepared to proceed at the original sale agreed price. I've spent £638 on searches, legal costs and valuation - does anyone know if there is any way to get my costs back please?
