The Stoke Newington conveyancing firm handling our Stoke Newington conveyancing has identified a discrepancy when comparing the information in the valuation survey and what is in the conveyancing documents. My solicitor has advised that he needs to ensure that the bank is happy with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my conveyancer’s approach legitimate?
Your solicitor 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 both parties.
My bid for a property was accepted at auction in Stoke Newington. Conveyancing is necessary. What is next?
Given that you are now to all intents and purposes signed on the dotted line you now have to appoint a conveyancing solicitor quickly as you are faced with a tight a fixed date to complete the property.

If you have purchased leasehold property the legal papers may provide a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and other conveyancing documentation relating to a leasehold property. You should give this to your appointed conveyancing solicitor at the earliest opportunity. You also need to ensure that you have funds in place to complete the transaction on the set completion date.

The formalities of my purchase has taken place for my property in Stoke Newington. Conveyancing was a necessary evil but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. How do I make a complaint?
All lenders have complaints procedures. Your first port of call should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Services Team at head office. In most cases complaints to a lender are sorted out effectively and efficiently. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service, South Quay Plaza, 183 Marsh Wall, London E14 9SR with full details of your complaint.
I am close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our house in Stoke Newington and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was built on contaminated land. Any local conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the purchasers are using an online conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Stoke Newington. Having lived in Stoke Newington for six years we know of no issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to get confirmation that there is no issue.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You should enquire of 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 health insurance to cover that same sickness)
