Our Kendal solicitor has spotted an inconsistency between the assumptions in the valuation survey and what is in the legal papers for the property. My lawyer says that he is obliged to check that the bank is happy with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my solicitor’s stance appropriate?
Your conveyancer 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.
