The Kew conveyancing firm handling our Kew conveyancing has identified a discrepancy between the information in the valuation survey and what is in the conveyancing documents. My lawyer has advised that he must ensure that the lender is happy with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my conveyancer’s course or action correct?
Your solicitor must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook requirements 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 both parties.
My wife and I are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our house in Kew and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was built on contaminated land. Any high street Kew conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers instructed a nationwide conveyancing practice rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Kew. Having lived in Kew for 4 years we know that this is a non issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to get confirmation need.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing solicitor currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You need to enquire of 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)
My wife and I purchased a terraced Victorian property in Kew. Conveyancing practitioner acted for me and Chelsea Building Society. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw a couple of entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold under the exact same address. Is it worth asking Chelsea Building Society to clarify?
You need to review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Kew and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also check the situation with the conveyancing solicitor who carried out the work.
Due to the encouragement of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Kew prior to retaining solicitors. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. The surveyor advised that some lenders will not issue a loan on such a property.
It varies from the lender to lender. HSBC has different instructions for example to Halifax. If you contact us we can check via the appropriate bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Kew. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.
