  • Indemnity policy for lack of Planning permission: who's paying?

    Hi all,
    my boyfriend and I are buying a property. The property has an extension and the vendor provided a copy of the indemnity policy for lack of Planning permission/ Building Regulation Approval to our solicitors. He was asked by them to confirm that this would be topped up on completion at his expense to show the current property value and amend the policy holders details if necessary. The estate agent came back to us saying that the vendor paid for this when he bought the property and is not prepared to cover the cost of a new indemnity to change the price. According to our solicitors this is the vendors responsibility as it is part of the property that he is selling. Is there something we can do if the vendor refuses to pay for it?
    Any suggestion or advise is welcome.
