Our Royton conveyancer has uncovered an inconsistency when comparing the assumptions in the home valuation survey and what is in the title deeds. My lawyer informs me that he is obliged to check that the bank is OK with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my lawyer’s stance legitimate?
Your solicitor must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications 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 am purchasing a ground floor maisonette in Royton. Conveyancing lawyer is waiting for, from the seller, building insurance schedule. This morning I was informed that the seller needs to forward the insurance documents for the flat above in addition. Why does my conveyancing practitioner want to see the insurance for the other flat? Is it strictly required? We have been in hold for the last month…
It is not impossible in leasehold conveyancing in Royton to discover Conveyancing in Royton in a minority of cases reveals that the lease requires the tenant's to insure their individual flats rather than the freeholder insuring the entire block - which is definitely preferable. You should check with your lawyer but it would appear that your property lawyer is looking to establish that the whole building is insured. Insuring a ground floor flat is no help when it comes to rebuilding after a fire if the 1st floor cannot be reconstructed due to lack of insurance.
