My Poplar solicitor has uncovered a difference between the surveyor’s assumptions in the home valuation report and what is revealed within the conveyancing documents. My solicitor says that he needs to ensure that the lender is OK with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my solicitor’s stance legitimate?
Your lawyer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions 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.
It is is a decade since I acquired my home in Poplar. Conveyancing lawyers have recently been appointed on the sale but I am unable to track down the title documents. Will this cause complications?
Don’t worry too much. First the deeds may be kept by your mortgage company or they could still be with the lawyers who oversaw your purchase. Secondly the chances are that the title will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you own the property by your conveyancing lawyers obtaining up to date copy of the land registers. Most conveyancing in Poplar involves registered property but in the rare situation where your property is not registered it is more problematic but is resolvable.
