The North Ferriby conveyancing firm handling our North Ferriby conveyancing has identified an inconsistency between the assumptions in the home valuation survey and what is in the title deeds. My solicitor says that he is duty bound to check that the bank is OK with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my solicitor’s course or action legitimate?
Your conveyancing practitioner must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions 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'm purchasing a new build house in North Ferriby with the aid of help to buy. The developers refused to reduce the amount so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The sale representative suggested that I not inform my lawyer about the deal as it will put at risk my mortgage with the lender. Should I keep quiet?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer 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.

We suspect that the owner is not behind this demand. Should the seller want ‘a quick sale', turning down a motivated purchaser is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Contact the vendors directly and make sure they comprehend that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to go, with finances in place © you do not need to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you will continue to appoint your own,trusted North Ferriby conveyancing solicitors - not the ones that will earn their negotiator at the agency a introducer fee or hit his conveyancing thresholds demanded by corporate headquarters.
