Our Lancashire lawyer has spotted a discrepancy when comparing the information in the home valuation survey and what is revealed within the conveyancing documents. My lawyer says that he needs to check that the lender is OK with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my solicitor’s course or action legitimate?
Your conveyancer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook requirements 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.
