The Amersham conveyancing firm handling our Amersham conveyancing has spotted an inconsistency when comparing the information in the valuation report and what is revealed within the legal papers for the property. My lawyer says that he is duty bound to ensure that the lender is happy with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my lawyer’s stance legitimate?
Your conveyancer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions 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 both parties.
What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Amersham? What am I being asked for?
Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules require solicitors and licensed conveyancers to check the identity of the potential client they are dealing with before they can accept their conveyancing instruction. The Client Care letter that you need to sign should confirm this. Your lender will also require certain documents to be checked. If you are unwilling to provide ID verification documents, your lawyer can not take you on as a client.
The Amersham conveyancing lawyers that just started acting on my house acquisition in Amersham have suddenly closed. I only went with them because I had to have a firm on the Co-operative conveyancing panel and my family Amersham lawyer was not. I gave my credit card details for them to take £195 for searches. What do I do now?
Assuming that you have an Estate Agent in the equation then inform them immediately so that they can let the sellers know that there may be a slight delay due to the problems encountered. Most sellers would be sympathetic and urge their lawyer to send a new set of papers to your new solicitors. You will need to appoint new lawyers that are on the Co-operative conveyancing panel and notify the lender. If you have paid over any money, it will hopefully be held by the SRA as money in an intervened firm's bank accounts is transferred to the SRA. Then, the SRA or the intervention agent looks at the intervened firm's accounts to work out who the money belongs to. To claim your money you will need to contact the SRA. If the SRA cannot return money you are owed from the firm's bank accounts, or if they can only return part of the money, you can apply to the Compensation Fund for a grant. Your new lawyers may be able to assist.
