The Clitheroe conveyancing firm handling our Clitheroe conveyancing has uncovered a discrepancy when comparing the surveyor’s assumptions in the valuation report and what is in the title deeds. My lawyer has advised that he is duty bound to check that the bank is OK with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my lawyer’s approach appropriate?
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 you.
My partner and I are planning on selling our house in Clitheroe and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being built on contaminated land. A local conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers are using an online conveyancing practice rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Clitheroe. We have lived in Clitheroe for many years we know that this is a non issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to obtain confirmation that the buyers are looking for.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You need to check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same ailment)
three months have elapsed since my purchase conveyancing in Clitheroe concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £160,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the property from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
I am buying a new build flat in Clitheroe. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build conveyancing.

The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? Please confirm the Lease plans are architect prepared. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants.
Due to the advice of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Clitheroe in advance of appointing solicitors. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold aspect to the property. My surveyor advised that some lenders may not grant a loan on this type of home.
It varies from the lender to lender. Lloyds has different instructions for example to Birmingham Midshires. If you contact us we can look into this further with the appropriate mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Clitheroe. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.
In my capacity as executor for the estate of my uncle I am disposing of a property in Neath but reside in Clitheroe. My conveyancer (who is 235 kilometers from merequires that I execute a stat dec before completion. Can you recommend a conveyancing solicitor in Clitheroe to attest and place their company stamp on the document?
Technically speaking you are unlikely to need to have the documents attested by a conveyancing solicitor. Normally or notary public or solicitor will suffice regardless of whether they are Clitheroe based
