Our Alvaston conveyancer has spotted a discrepancy between the assumptions in the home valuation survey and what is in the title deeds. My lawyer has advised that he needs to check that the bank is happy with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my lawyer’s stance legitimate?
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.

There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Alvaston registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can differ subject to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry need to notify any interested parties. Currently roughly three quarters of submission are fully dealt with within two weeks but some can be subject to longer delays. Historically registration takes place once the purchaser is living at the property so 'speed' is not typically top priority but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer could speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.
