My Lytchett Matravers lawyer has spotted a difference between the surveyor’s assumptions in the valuation report and what is in the title deeds. My solicitor has advised that he is duty bound to check that the lender is happy with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my solicitor’s approach right?

Your solicitor must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications 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.
