My solicitor has identified a defect with the lease for the property we are buying in Nunhead. The seller’s lawyers have offered title insurance as a workaround. We are content with insurance and will cover the costs. Our conveyancing practitioner says that he must ensure that the lender is happy with this solution. Are we the client or is the mortgage company ?
The short answer to your last question is that, notwithstanding the potential for a conflict of interest, you and the mortgage company are the client. Your solicitor must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions. The UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions require your lawyer to disclose issues such as defects with the lease so that the mortgage company can be afforded the opportunity to check with their valuer as to the extent that the value of the property is affected. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your solicitor will have no choice but to discontinue acting for you.

If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Nunhead. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.
