My Little Ilford conveyancer has discovered a difference between the surveyor’s assumptions in the home valuation report and what is in the title deeds. My solicitor has advised that he must check that the bank is OK with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my lawyer’s course or action legitimate?
Your conveyancing practitioner 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.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Little Ilford is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Little Ilford are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Little Ilford you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Little Ilford may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
