The Putney Vale conveyancing firm handling our Putney Vale conveyancing has uncovered a discrepancy between the assumptions in the valuation survey and what is in the conveyancing documents. My lawyer has advised that he needs to ensure that the lender is OK with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my lawyer’s approach right?
Your conveyancer 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.

My fiance and I intend to purchase a 2 bedroom apartment in Putney Vale with a residential mortgage from Skipton Building Society.We like our Putney Vale conveyancing solicitor but Skipton Building Society advised that his firm is not listed on their "panel". It seems we are left with no choice but to instruct a Skipton Building Society panel solicitor or keep our high street solicitor and pay for one of their panel ones to act for them. This seems very unfair; is there anything we can do?
Unfortunately,no. The loan offered to you is subject to its various provisions, a common one being that conveyancers needs to be on the Skipton Building Society solicitor panel. in the past, most mortgage companies had large numbers of solicitors on their panels: a borrower could find one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Skipton Building Society

I am looking at a couple of flats in Putney Vale both have approximately 50 years left on the lease term. Do I need to be concerned?
There are plenty of short leases in Putney Vale. The lease is a legal document that entitles you to use the premises for a period of time. As the lease shortens the value of the lease deteriorates and it becomes more expensive to acquire a lease extension. This is why it is often a good idea to increase the term of the lease. More often than not it is difficulties arise selling premises with a short lease because mortgage companies less inclined to grant a loan on such properties. Lease extension can be a protracted process. We advise that you get professional assistance from a conveyancer and surveyor with experience in this area.
I have attempted and failed to negotiate with my landlord for a lease extension without any joy. Can one make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal? Can you recommend a Putney Vale conveyancing firm to help?
if there is a missing freeholder or if there is dispute about the premium for a lease extension, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 it is possible to make an application to the LVT to determine the sum to be paid.
An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement case for a Putney Vale residence is 158 West Hill in November 2010. the Tribunal held that the premium to be paid for the freehold reversion should be £99,650 This case was in relation to 7 flats. The unexpired term as at the valuation date was 75.88 years.
My conveyancing in Putney Vale is set to complete on Friday, yet the people I am purchasing off has asked to move out 24 hours later at at 2pm. Should I accept such a idea?
In situations where you are having a mortgage then your conveyancer will insist that you have vacant possession on Friday - the bank will compel it.
