The Dunchurch conveyancing firm handling our Dunchurch conveyancing has discovered a difference when comparing the information in the valuation survey and what is in the title deeds. My lawyer has advised that he is duty bound to check that the bank is happy with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my solicitor’s course or action legitimate?

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 you.

It is a dozen years since I acquired my home in Dunchurch. Conveyancing solicitors have now been appointed on the sale but I can't locate the deeds. Will this cause complications?

Don’t worry too much. Firstly the deeds may be with your mortgage company or they may be in the possession of the lawyers who handled your purchase. Secondly in most cases the title will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to prove you are the registered owner by your conveyancing lawyers procuring up to date copy of the land registers. Nearly all conveyancing in Dunchurch relates to registered property but in the unlikely event that your property is unregistered it adds to the complexity but is resolvable.

Should my solicitor be making enquiries about flooding as part of the conveyancing in Dunchurch.

The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for conveyancers carrying out conveyancing in Dunchurch. Some people will buy a house in Dunchurch, fully aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, aside from the physical damage, where a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, adequate building insurance, or dispose of the premises. There are steps that can be taken during the course of a house purchase to forewarn the purchaser.

Lawyers are not best placed to offer advice on flood risk, however there are a number of searches that can be carried out by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which will figure out the risks in Dunchurch. The conventional set of information sent to a purchaser’s conveyancer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) contains a standard inquiry of the owner to discover if the premises has historically flooded. If flooding has previously occurred which is not revealed by the seller, then a purchaser may commence a claim for damages stemming from an misleading answer. The purchaser’s conveyancers will also order an environmental report. This will indicate whether there is any known flood risk. If so, additional investigations will need to be carried out.

I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and found one close by in Dunchurch I like with amenity areas and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 52 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Dunchurch for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be an issue. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you can request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.
