The Clarbeston Road conveyancing firm handling our Clarbeston Road conveyancing has spotted a discrepancy between the assumptions in the valuation survey and what is revealed within the title deeds. My lawyer has advised that he is obliged to ensure that the bank is OK with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my conveyancer’s stance correct?
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.

Last December I purchased a leasehold property in Clarbeston Road. Am I liable to pay service charges for periods before completion of my purchase?
Where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous owner and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. Strange as it may seem, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. It is an essential part of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to ensure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.
If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).

My partner and I are acquiring a studio flat in Clarbeston Road. When we first instructed conveyancer, they assured us that they were on all mainstream mortgage company panels. The mortgage broker emailed today to say that they are not on the Yorkshire BS approved list. If it turns out to be true, what should we do? Should we simply find a new solicitor that is on their panel or do we pay for dual representation, with Yorkshire BS selecting their own approved solicitor.
When acquiring a property with mortgage finance it is normal for the buyer’s solicitors to also act for the purchaser's lender. In order to act for a bank or building society a solicitor has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the property lawyer to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict criteria which the solicitor has to meet. Some building societies now insist their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Accreditation Scheme. Your conveyancer should contact Yorkshire BS to find out if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own solicitors to act. You don't have to instruct a firm on Yorkshire BS's conveyancing panel and you may continue to use your own Clarbeston Road solicitors, in which case it will likely add costs, and it will likely delay the transaction as you are adding another solicitor into the mix.
