The Bexhill conveyancing firm handling our Bexhill conveyancing has spotted a discrepancy when comparing the assumptions in the home valuation survey and what is in the conveyancing documents. My lawyer informs me that he needs to check that the bank is happy with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my solicitor’s approach appropriate?
Your property lawyer 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.
