Me and my partner are buying property in Alfriston. My Solicitor has never been on on the mortgage company approved panel. Is it possible for me to use my Alfriston conveyancing solicitor even though they are not on the lender panel of approved conveyancing solicitors?
Your options include
- Proceed with your existing Alfriston conveyancing practitioner but your mortgage company will need to instruct a conveyancer on their approved list. The net result is additional fees and likely frustration.
- Choose a new property lawyer to act in the purchase, ensuring that they are on the mortgage company conveyancing panel.
- Convince your solicitor to seek to join the mortgage company panel

Searches are not likely to be the root cause of holding up conveyancing in Alfriston.
three months have elapsed following my purchase conveyancing in Alfriston completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 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.
The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build flat in Alfriston. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build conveyancing.

Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants.
