Our Flitwick solicitor has uncovered a discrepancy when comparing the assumptions in the home valuation survey and what is revealed within the conveyancing documents. My solicitor has advised that he needs to check that the bank is OK with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my solicitor’s stance appropriate?

Your lawyer 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 you.

How does conveyancing in Flitwick differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Flitwick approach us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is finished. This is because builders in Flitwick typically acquire 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 Flitwick or who has acted in the same development.

I am looking for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and found one round the corner in Flitwick I like with a park and transport links nearby, the downside is that it only has 49 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Flitwick in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?

Should you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property 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 term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.
