The Wadebridge conveyancing firm handling our Wadebridge conveyancing has identified a discrepancy when comparing the information in the home valuation report and what is in the legal papers for the property. My lawyer says that he is duty bound to ensure that the bank is happy with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my lawyer’s approach right?
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.

The conveyancers handling our conveyancing in Wadebridge has forwarded documents to review that reveal that the land is unregistered with epitome documents. Is it not the case that all houses in Wadebridge should be registered?
Although the vast majorities of properties in Wadebridge are now registered with HMLR there are still a few that are unregistered. Any property in Wadebridge that has been purchased since the late 1980’s will have been registered at the Land Registry under the compulsory ‘first registration’ scheme. However, if a Wadebridge property has not changed hands in that time then it’s likely the old fashioned title deeds will be the only evidence of ownership.Many Wadebridge conveyancing lawyers will be capable of dealing with such matters but if any uncertainty exists the usual guidance nowadays appears to be for the seller to register the title first and thereafter deal with the dispose of the property to the purchaser - this this chain of events will result in a drawn-out transaction.
