My Ruthin conveyancer has spotted a discrepancy when comparing the surveyor’s assumptions in the valuation survey and what is revealed within the title deeds. My lawyer says that he is duty bound to check that the bank is happy with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my lawyer’s stance 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 both parties.
