My Kingsbridge conveyancer has spotted a difference between the assumptions in the home valuation report and what is revealed within the legal papers for the property. My lawyer informs me that he is obliged to ensure that the bank is happy with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my solicitor’s stance right?

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.

Most buyers of new build property in Kingsbridge come to us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is finished. This is because builders in Kingsbridge usually purchase 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 conveyancers 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 Kingsbridge or who has acted in the same development.
