Just contacted my conveyancing solicitor in Dursley who conducted the legals two years ago and wanted a conveyancing estimate based on an identical type of house sale & purchase (a leasehold residence and a freehold property) of similar values with a mortgage from Nottingham Building Society.

My Dursley conveyancer has spotted a difference when comparing the information in the valuation report and what is revealed within the legal papers for the property. My lawyer says that he needs to check that the lender is happy 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 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.

How does conveyancing in Dursley differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Dursley contact us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is built. This is because developers in Dursley usually acquire the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Dursley or who has acted in the same development.
