The Rush Green conveyancing firm handling our Rush Green conveyancing has identified a difference when comparing the information in the valuation survey and what is in the conveyancing documents. My solicitor informs me that he is obliged to check that the bank is happy with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my solicitor’s stance correct?
Your property lawyer 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.
I have Fifty Six years left on my lease and require a lease extension for my flat in Rush Green. Conveyancing solicitors on the Tesco Bank panel can deal with such extensions correct?

Me and my partner are buying a house in Rush Green. I might seem paranoid but how we can trust a lawyer? On completion day we will need to put funds into their account. What protection do we have from them run away with our money?

I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Rush Green off the council. I have a mortgage offer with Co-operative. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Co-operative, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Co-operative conveyancing panel.
I am due to exchange contracts on my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in December 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, UBS are being pedantic. The Rush Green solicitor who is on the UBS conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but UBS are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do UBS have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that UBS have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why UBS may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
We are selling our house in Rush Green and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was built on contaminated land. Any high street Rush Green conveyancer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers instructed an online conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Rush Green. We have lived in Rush Green for six years we know of no issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to obtain clarification that the buyers are looking for.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer already. Are they able to advise? You must check with 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 life insurance to cover that same ailment)
