Our Winterbourne lawyer has uncovered a difference between the assumptions in the home valuation survey and what is in the legal papers for the property.

Your lawyer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook provisions 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.

My conveyancer has informed me that missing deeds insurance is needed on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Winterbourne?

I am purchasing a property in Winterbourne. One unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Lloyds have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?

Given that your lender is Lloyds your lawyer must follow the conveyancing requirements contained in Part 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Lloyds. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook contains minimum provisions for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancing practitioners are required to report to Lloyds where a lease does not comply with these requirements. The specifications relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not restricted to Winterbourne.

3 months have elapsed since my purchase conveyancing in Winterbourne took place. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the property from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

I decided to have a survey carried out on a house in Winterbourne prior to instructing lawyers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. The surveyor has said that some lenders may refuse to give a mortgage on a flying freehold home.

It varies from the lender to lender. Lloyds has different requirements from Halifax. If you call us we can check with the relevant mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Winterbourne. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.
