The Burnham conveyancing firm handling our Burnham conveyancing has identified a discrepancy when comparing the surveyor’s assumptions in the valuation report and what is in the title deeds. My solicitor says that he must check that the bank is OK with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my conveyancer’s stance appropriate?
Your solicitor 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.

I acquired my apartment on 8 May and the transaction details is not yet registered. Any reason for this? My conveyancing solicitor in Burnham expressed confidence that it should be registered inside ten days. Are properties in Burnham uniquely lengthy to register?
There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Burnham registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timeframes can differ depending on the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry need to notify any interested parties. At present approximately three quarters of such applications are fully dealt with in less than three weeks but some can be subject to extensive hold-ups. Registration takes place after the buyer is living at the property therefore an expedited registration is not typically an essential issue but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
I am looking for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and identified one close by in Burnham I like with a park and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 52 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Burnham in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?
Should you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be an issue. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you may ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.
