My Manselton lawyer has discovered a discrepancy between the assumptions in the home valuation survey and what is revealed within the legal papers for the property. My lawyer has advised that he needs to check that the bank is happy with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my solicitor’s approach correct?
Your conveyancing practitioner 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 you.
