The Haydock conveyancing firm handling our Haydock conveyancing has spotted an inconsistency between the information in the valuation report and what is in the title deeds. My lawyer has advised that he is duty bound to ensure that the bank is OK with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my lawyer’s course or action right?
Your 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.
Having sold my house in Haydock last March yet the purchaser is telephoning me to moan that his conveyancer needs to hear from mysolicitor. What are the post completion sale formalities following completion?

My house in Haydock is up for sale and I have a buyer. Does the conveyancer need to be on the Co-operative conveyancing panel in order to deal with repayment of my mortgage?
Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Co-operative conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their specifications fairly frequently currently.
Should our solicitor be asking questions concerning flooding as part of the conveyancing in Haydock.
The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for lawyers specialising in conveyancing in Haydock.

However, leaving to one side the physical destruction, where a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, satisfactory building insurance, or sell the property. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the buyer.
Solicitors are not qualified to offer advice on flood risk, but there are a various searches that may be carried out by the buyer or on a buyer’s behalf which can figure out the risks in Haydock. The conventional set of information sent to a purchaser’s conveyancer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) contains a standard inquiry of the seller to find out if the premises has suffered from flooding. If flooding has previously occurred which is not disclosed by the vendor, then a buyer may commence a legal claim for losses resulting from an inaccurate response. The buyer’s conveyancers should also conduct an environmental search. This will disclose if there is a recorded flood risk. If so, more detailed inquiries should be initiated.
I am buying my first flat in Haydock with a loan from Accord Mortgages Ltd. The builders refused to move on the price so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The sale representative advised me not to tell my solicitor about this extras as it could put at risk my loan with the lender. Is this normal?.
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%.
