238. Acting for a lender.

Where a Land Registry search1 is being made the buyer is able to take the protection of the search if it is made in the name of the lender but not vice versa2. The search application form must therefore be completed in the name of the lender client. If the application form is completed in the name of the buyer client a second search must be made on behalf of the lender. The CML Lenders' Handbook and the BSA Mortgage Instructions
