Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Redfield

The Redfield conveyancing firm handling our Redfield conveyancing has spotted a difference when comparing the assumptions in the home valuation survey and what is in the title deeds. My solicitor informs me that he needs to ensure that the lender is happy with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my lawyer’s course or action 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.

Following the abolition of Home Information Packs, EPC’s became a required component of selling a house. An energy assessment must be commissioned prior to the property being advertised.

My offer on a property in Redfield has been agreed to, but there is a chain.

What should be my next step? When do I get the mortgage application with HSBC started?

It is normal to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs prematurely (home loan application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then valuation, Redfield conveyancing search charges, etc). First, you must ensure that your solicitor is on the HSBC approved list. Regarding the next phase this very much dictated by the uniqueness of your case, desire for the property and on the state of the market. In a hot market the majority of home buyers would apply for a home loan with HSBC and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their lawyer to move forward with the conveyancing in Redfield.
