Our Carmarthen solicitor has discovered a discrepancy between the assumptions in the valuation survey and what is in the conveyancing documents. My solicitor says that he is duty bound to ensure that the lender is OK with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my solicitor’s course or action correct?
Your property lawyer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications 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 Carmarthen differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Carmarthen contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is constructed. This is because developers in Carmarthen usually buy the site, 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 Carmarthen or who has acted in the same development.
