The Knutsford conveyancing firm handling our Knutsford conveyancing has spotted a difference when comparing the information in the valuation survey and what is revealed within the title deeds. My lawyer says that he needs to ensure that the lender is happy with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my solicitor’s course or action right?
Your conveyancer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications 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.
I have an AIP. The lender mentioned the home loan came with free conveyancing. Is the implication that I have to appoint their panel lawyer as I would prefer to appoint a specialised conveyancing solicitor in Knutsford?
You should check but the chances are that appoint one of their panel solicitors should you want the "fee-free" deal. Call the mortgage company to explore if they make available a monetary alternative. In the past a few mortgage companies offered a £250 cashback as a further option in which case that money can go towards the cost for your conveyancing solicitor near Knutsford.
How does conveyancing in Knutsford differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Knutsford approach us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is finished. This is because builders in Knutsford tend to buy 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 Knutsford or who has acted in the same development.
