The Abergele conveyancing firm handling our Abergele conveyancing has spotted a difference when comparing the information in the home valuation report and what is in the legal papers for the property.

Your property lawyer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook provisions which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for you.

That would normally be once you have the mortgage offer and survey report, however if you want to speed the process you can start the ball rolling quicker albeit risking some money.
