The Finsbury Park conveyancing firm handling our Finsbury Park conveyancing has discovered a difference when comparing the surveyor’s assumptions in the home valuation survey and what is in the conveyancing documents. My lawyer says that he is duty bound to ensure that the bank is OK with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my solicitor’s course or action right?
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.

I work for a long established estate agent office in Finsbury Park where we have experienced a few flat sales derailed as a result of leases having less than 80 years remaining. I have received contradictory information from local Finsbury Park conveyancing firms. Could you confirm whether the owner of a flat can start the lease extension process for the buyer?
As long as the seller has been the owner for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to commence the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. This means that the buyer need not have to wait 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment has to be done prior to, or simultaneously with completion of the disposal of the property.
Alternatively, it may be possible to agree the lease extension with the freeholder either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the purchaser.
