Our Ilford lawyer has discovered a difference when comparing the surveyor’s assumptions in the home valuation report and what is revealed within the title deeds. My solicitor informs me that he must ensure that the bank is OK with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my lawyer’s stance correct?
Your solicitor 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.

How does conveyancing in Ilford differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Ilford contact us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is ready to move into. This is because new home sellers in Ilford usually purchase the real estate, 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 property lawyers 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 Ilford or who has acted in the same development.
