The Washwood Heath conveyancing firm handling our Washwood Heath conveyancing has spotted an inconsistency between the assumptions in the valuation survey and what is in the conveyancing documents. My solicitor says that he needs to check that the bank is OK with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my conveyancer’s course or action legitimate?

Your lawyer 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.

We wanted to use a conveyancing solicitor in Washwood Heath for our house purchase. Our financial adviser has since notified us that our mortgage lenders Bank of Scotland won't deal with them. Why is this not regarded as unfair competition?

Mortgage Companies tend to imposes restrictions either the type or the number of conveyancing practices on their approved list of lawyers. A common example of such restriction(s) being that a law practice must not be a sole practitioner. As well as restricting the profile of firm, a few banks have reduced the amount of solicitor practices they use to act for them. You should note that Bank of Scotland have no responsibility for the quality of advice provided by any member of Bank of Scotland Conveyancer Panel. Mortgage fraud was a key driver in the reduction of conveyancing panels a few years ago even though there remains mixed views concerning the extent of solicitor engagement in some of that fraud. Figures from the Land Registry reveal that plenty of law firms, including some in or near Washwood Heath only perform one or two conveyances a year.

We are selling our home in Washwood Heath and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was built on contaminated land. Any local conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers used a national conveyancing practice rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Washwood Heath. We have lived in Washwood Heath for 5 years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to get clarification that the buyers are looking for.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor already. Are they able to advise? You need to 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 life insurance to cover that same sickness)

I am buying a new build house in Washwood Heath with a loan from Barclays Direct. The builders would not reduce the price so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The sale representative suggested that I not disclose to my conveyancer about this deal as it may affect my mortgage with the lender. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

How can the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 affect my commercial offices in Washwood Heath and how can you help?

The particular law that you refer to provides a safeguard to commercial lessees, granting the a statutory right to make a request to court for a continuation of occupancy at the end of the lease term. There are limited grounds where a landlord can refrain from granting a lease renewal and the rules are complex. We are happy to direct you to commercial conveyancing firms who use the act to your advantage and help with commercial conveyancing in Washwood Heath
