The Snodland conveyancing firm handling our Snodland conveyancing has discovered a difference between the surveyor’s assumptions in the home valuation report and what is in the title deeds. My lawyer has advised that he is obliged to ensure that the bank is OK with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my solicitor’s stance legitimate?
Your conveyancer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications 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 have todaybecome aware that Wolstenholmes have closed. They carried out my conveyancing in Snodland for a purchase of a freehold house 18 months ago. How can I establish that the property is registered correctly in the name of the previous owner?
The quickest method to check if the property is in your name, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Snodland conveyancing specialists.
How does conveyancing in Snodland differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Snodland come to us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is constructed. This is because house builders in Snodland tend to buy the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Snodland or who has acted in the same development.
