Our Batheaston solicitor has uncovered an inconsistency when comparing the surveyor’s assumptions in the home valuation survey and what is revealed within the conveyancing documents. My solicitor has advised that he is duty bound to ensure that the lender is OK with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my lawyer’s course or action right?
Your conveyancing practitioner must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook requirements 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.
In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Batheaston? Is this really warranted?
Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering laws require solicitors and licensed conveyancers to verify the identification documents of the potential client they are dealing with before they can accept their conveyancing retainer. The Terms of Engagement that you are required to sign should stipulate this. Your lender will also require certain documents to be checked. Where you are unwilling to hand over ID verification documents, your solicitor will not be able to take you on as a client.

I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and identified one round the corner in Batheaston I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 52 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Batheaston suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.
