Our Lincolnshire conveyancer has uncovered a discrepancy when comparing the assumptions in the home valuation report and what is in the conveyancing documents. My solicitor has advised that he needs to check that the bank is OK with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my conveyancer’s approach legitimate?
Your lawyer 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 both parties.

We are due to move home in March. Does my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the day of completion. As an aside, can you put forward a removal company in Lincolnshire. Conveyancing solicitor was organised before I stumbled across this site.
On the day of completion you will need to collect the house keys from the estate agent however this should only occur after the vendors lawyers advise the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be collected. Subsequently you will need to tell the removal men that they can start moving you in. As a matter of policy we do not suggest a specific removal company but can assist you in locating a conveyancing in Lincolnshire or a legal practice that specialises in conveyancing in Lincolnshire.

I'm buying a new build house in Lincolnshire with a mortgage from Bank of Ireland. The sellers would not move on the price so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The sale representative advised me not disclose to my solicitor about the side-deal as it will jeopardize my mortgage with Bank of Ireland. Is this normal?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
