The Loughton conveyancing firm handling our Loughton conveyancing has uncovered a discrepancy when comparing the information in the valuation report and what is revealed within the title deeds. My lawyer has advised that he is duty bound to ensure that the lender is OK with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my solicitor’s course or action right?
Your property 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.

Looking forward to sign contracts shortly on a garden flat in Loughton. Conveyancing lawyers inform me that they will have a report out to me within the next couple of days. Are there areas in the report that I should be focusing on?
The report on title for your leasehold conveyancing in Loughton should include some of the following:
Repair and maintenance of the flat You would want to receive a copy of the lease The total ownership of the property. This will be the flat itself but might incorporate a loft or basement if appropriate. You should know whether the lease permits you to add or upgrade aspects of the premises- you must be made aware as to whether it applies to all alterations or limited to structural alteration, and whether licences for alterations is mandated necessary Where does the liability rest for repairing the window frames
Having spent months of dialogue we are unable to agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Loughton. Does the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal have jurisdiction to calculate the appropriate figures?
if there is a missing landlord or where there is disagreement about the premium for a lease extension, under the relevant statutes it is possible to make an application to the First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) to calculate the premium.
An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement case for a Loughton residence is 201 & 201a St. Barnabas Road in October 2013. The Tribunal decided that the price to be paid by the Applicants for the freehold interest is £20,071. This case related to 2 flats. The remaining number of years on the lease was 69.26 years.
Is it necessary during the course of the conveyancing process to pop into the offices of the lender conveyancing panel solicitor to sign the mortgage deed? If so, I will choose one who does conveyancing in Loughton as it will be easier to attend their offices when needed.
As opposed to ten years ago, most lenders no longer require their conveyancing panel solicitor to witness the borrowers signature. You will still be obliged to provide ID Documents and there are still distinct advantages to using a local solicitor, in your case a conveyancing solicitor in Loughton.
