The Motspur Park conveyancing firm handling our Motspur Park conveyancing has spotted a discrepancy when comparing the surveyor’s assumptions in the home valuation survey and what is in the conveyancing documents. My lawyer says that he needs to check that the bank is OK with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my lawyer’s stance appropriate?
Your 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 an executor of my recently deceased mother’s Will, with a bungalow in Motspur Park which will be marketed. The property is unregistered at the Land Registry and I'm told that some buyers solicitors will insist that it is in place before they will move forward. What's the mechanism for this?
In the circumstances you refer to it seems prudent to apply to register in the names of the personal representative(s) as named in the probate and in their capacity as PRs. HMLR’s online guidance explains how to register for the first time and what is required re the deeds and forms. You would need to include and certified copy of the probate as well and complete the form FR1 to refer to the PRs as the applicant.
