    Postcode a problem? 11th May 18 at 11:33 PM
    Hi,

    I have made an offer on an house and am seeing my mortgage lender on Monday morning. I received a letter from my solicitor today stating my offer etc for the property.

    The issue I have is on the solicitors letter and the sale ad online and schedule it shows the address and postcode of the property. But the home survey shows a different postcode (from a few searches online the house number appears to have the same postcode as the survey not the letter from the solicitor and I believe the one one on the survey to be correct).

    I think the street which is a mix of older less expensive homes have one postcode and the newer homes added on have another but the street name is the same.

    Should I speak to my solicitor on the phone before I go in on Monday or should I go with the postcode provided by the sellers estate agent and the solicitors letter on my mortgage application?

    Thanks again

    A property has no other address/postcode. This is the only 100% correct version.

    Yes. All parties, lender, surveyor, solicitor should all be using the correct official PAF address.
