My Barnet conveyancer has spotted a discrepancy between the information in the valuation survey and what is in the title deeds. My solicitor informs me that he is obliged to ensure that the lender is happy with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my lawyer’s stance legitimate?

Your property lawyer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications 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 you.

The easiest method to see if the property is registered to you, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Barnet conveyancing specialists.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Barnet.

How does the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 affect my commercial premises in Barnet and how can your lawyers assist?

The particular law that you refer to affords protection to commercial leaseholders, giving them the legal entitlement to make a request to court for a new lease and continue in occupation when the lease reaches an end. There are limited grounds where a landlord can refrain from granting a lease renewal and the rules are complicated. We are happy to direct you to commercial conveyancing solicitors who use the act for protection and handle your commercial conveyancing in Barnet
