The Potton conveyancing firm handling our Potton conveyancing has spotted a discrepancy when comparing the assumptions in the home valuation report and what is in the legal papers for the property. My lawyer says that he is obliged to check that the bank is OK with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my solicitor’s stance 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.

Can you help - my lawyer says that lack of right of way insurance is required on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Potton conveyancing?

I've read lots of mortgage guides, I note that it is considered advisable to get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Potton solicitor - who is on the Santander conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. Is that normal?

Santander will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Santander will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Potton surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.

The deeds to our home can not be found. The solicitors who dealt with the conveyancing in Potton 5 years ago are no longer around. What are my next steps?
