The Frizington conveyancing firm handling our Frizington conveyancing has spotted a difference between the surveyor’s assumptions in the home valuation report and what is revealed within the legal papers for the property. My solicitor informs me that he is obliged to check that the bank is OK with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my conveyancer’s course or action correct?
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 both parties.
This question may be naive but I am unexperienced as a first time buyer of a two bedroom flat in Frizington. Do I receive the keys to the premises on completion from my lawyer? If this is the case, I will appoint a local conveyancing solicitor in Frizington?
There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Conveyancing lawyers for you will electronically transfer the completion advance to the owner’s solicitors, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you should be able to pick up the keys from the selling Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen between 1 and 3pm.
We are buying a 4 bedroom semi-detached house in Frizington. We would like to carry out a loft conversion at the property.Will legal work on the property include enquiries to determine if these works are prohibited?

Certain extensions require local authority planning permissions and approval under the building regulations. Many locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or affect extensions. It would be sensible to check these issues with a surveyor before you commit yourself to a purchase.

A few days later, the conveyancer contacted me to say that they were not on the Barclays conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?
You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Barclays panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

Are there any distinct benefits to instructing a local lawyer in Frizington
A significant proportion of house movers in Frizington select a local lawyer so that they can pop into the firm’s offices in the event that they have problems, and to execute paperwork without using the Royal Mail.
