The Balsall Heath conveyancing firm handling our Balsall Heath conveyancing has spotted a difference when comparing the surveyor’s assumptions in the valuation report and what is in the conveyancing documents. My lawyer has advised that he must check that the bank is OK with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my conveyancer’s approach correct?
Your conveyancer 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.

I am buying a new build house in Balsall Heath with the aid of help to buy. The builders would not budge the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of extras instead. The sale representative advised me not reveal to my solicitor about the extras as it could put at risk my loan with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
