Our solicitor has discovered a defect with the lease for the property we are purchasing in Whittlesey. The seller’s lawyers have put forward defective title insurance as a workaround. We are happy with insurance and will cover the costs. Our lawyer has advised that he must be satisfied that the lender is content with this solution. Are we the client or is the lender?
Notwithstanding that you have a mortgage offer from the mortgage company does not mean to say that the property will meet their conditions for the purposes of a mortgage. Your lawyer has to ensure that the lease has to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications. You and the lender are the client. The appropriate lender specifications have to be complied with.

My financial adviser has suggested using their property lawyer for our conveyancing in Whittlesey - won’t it be advisable to just instruct them?
This is not necessarily the case and you are free to use whichever lawyer you prefer for your Whittlesey home move. A conveyancing practitioner put forward by an estate agent may not necessarily be the right solicitor, they may put forward their own conveyancing firm who are based remotely. In this instance you may not have contact with your conveyancer and due to the lack of continuity in the transaction, it may be difficult to obtain progress reports.
