My Capel Curig conveyancer has uncovered a difference when comparing the surveyor’s assumptions in the valuation report 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 still content to lend. Is my conveyancer’s approach appropriate?
Your solicitor 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 both parties.

How does conveyancing in Capel Curig differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Capel Curig approach us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is finished. This is because new home sellers in Capel Curig tend to purchase the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Capel Curig or who has acted in the same development.
I am looking for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and identified one close by in Capel Curig I like with a park and railway links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 49 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Capel Curig for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?
Should you require a mortgage that many years may be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.
