The Yaxley conveyancing firm handling our Yaxley conveyancing has discovered a discrepancy when comparing the assumptions in the home valuation survey and what is in the title deeds. My lawyer informs me that he is duty bound to check that the bank is OK with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my conveyancer’s approach correct?
Your 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.
