Can you help? My Aston solicitor is informing me me that he is legally obliged toapply for Aston conveyancing searches due to the fact thatthe firm are on the Lloydsapproved lawyer panel. Do I not have any say here?
You have limited options available to you. Given that you are taking out a loan with a mortgage company your property lawyer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your solicitor would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to follow the CML Handbook requirements . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Aston conveyancing searches.
3 months have gone by since my purchase conveyancing in Aston took place. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £180,000. 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 premises 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 acquired a basement flat in Aston, conveyancing formalities finalised in 1998. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Corresponding properties in Aston with over 90 years remaining are worth £195,000. The ground rent is £45 invoiced every year. The lease finishes on 21st October 2082
With 63 years unexpired we estimate the price of your lease extension to range between £16,200 and £18,600 plus costs.
The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to provide the actual costs in the absence of comprehensive investigations. You should not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional issues that need to be considered and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action based on this information before getting professional advice.
I'm selling a bungalow in Aston. I can find my conveyancer's company on the CLC list, but I can't find my lawyer's name on the list. Is this a big problem?
Not every individual in the law firm must be listed by the regulator. As long there is someone qualified to 'oversee' the transaction, the actual day-to-day activity can be undertaken by unqualified staff.
