The Bubwith conveyancing firm handling our Bubwith conveyancing has spotted an inconsistency between the surveyor’s assumptions in the valuation report and what is in the title deeds. My solicitor has advised that he is duty bound to check that the bank is happy with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my conveyancer’s approach correct?
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 both parties.

There are only Sixty One years left on my flat in Bubwith. I now wish to get lease extension but my landlord is missing. What are my options?
If you meet the appropriate requirements, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will mean that your lease can be granted an extra 90 years by the magistrate. You will be obliged to prove that you or your lawyers have used your best endeavours to find the lessor. For most situations a specialist should be helpful to carry out a search and prepare an expert document which can be accepted by the court as proof that the landlord can not be located. It is advisable to get professional help from a conveyancer both on proving the landlord’s disappearance and the application to the County Court overseeing Bubwith.
