The Anerley conveyancing firm handling our Anerley conveyancing has uncovered a difference between the surveyor’s assumptions in the home valuation report and what is revealed within the title deeds. My solicitor informs me that he is duty bound to check that the bank is OK with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my solicitor’s course or action legitimate?
Your property lawyer 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.
It is 10 years ago since I bought my home in Anerley. Conveyancing lawyers have just been retained on the sale but I am unable to find my title deeds. Will this cause complications?
You need not be too concerned. Firstly there is a chance that the deeds will be kept by your mortgage company or they could be in the possession of the lawyers who handled the purchase. Secondly the chances are that the land will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you are the registered owner by your conveyancing lawyers obtaining up to date copy of the land registers. Almost all conveyancing in Anerley involves registered property but in the rare situation where your home is not registered it adds to the complexity but is resolvable.
