Our Harmondsworth conveyancer has uncovered a difference between the surveyor’s assumptions in the valuation survey and what is revealed within the conveyancing documents. My lawyer says that he is duty bound to check that the lender is happy with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my lawyer’s stance right?

Your property lawyer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook provisions 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 happen to be the only beneficiary of my late father’s estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Harmondsworth. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in May. I plan to dispose of the house. I do know about the CML 6 month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship will be treated the same way as if I'd bought the property in May. Is the property unsalable for six months?

The CML handbook requires solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you may be impacted by that. many mortgage companies would take a practical view as this clause primarily exists to pick up on subsales or the wholesaling and assigning of properties.
