My Gowerton solicitor has uncovered a discrepancy between the assumptions in the valuation survey and what is in the conveyancing documents. My lawyer says that he must ensure that the lender is happy with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my conveyancer’s approach legitimate?
Your property 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.
