My Laceby conveyancer has uncovered a difference when comparing the surveyor’s 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 content to go ahead. Is my lawyer’s course or action correct?
Your conveyancing practitioner 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.
I am downsizing from our property in Laceby and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being built land that was not decontaminated. Any local lawyer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the purchasers are using a nationwide conveyancing firm as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Laceby. We have lived in Laceby for 5 years we know that this is a non issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to obtain clarification that the buyers are looking for.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing firm already. Are they able to advise? You need to check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same sickness)
It has been five months since my purchase conveyancing in Laceby took place. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the property from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
