Our Derbyshire solicitor has discovered an inconsistency between the assumptions in the valuation survey and what is revealed within the title deeds. My solicitor has advised that he must ensure that the lender is happy with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my conveyancer’s approach right?
Your conveyancing practitioner 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.

It has been 4 months following my purchase conveyancing in Derbyshire concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
