The Blackpool conveyancing firm handling our Blackpool conveyancing has discovered a discrepancy when comparing the information in the valuation report and what is revealed within the conveyancing documents. My lawyer has advised that he needs to check that the bank is OK with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my lawyer’s course or action appropriate?
Your property lawyer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook requirements 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.
Can you explain why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Blackpool is more expensive?
The conveyancing fees on a leasehold premises in Blackpool is inevitably greater when contrasted to a freehold residence. This is due to the additional investigations necessary in communicating with the freeholder and management company to collate the information about whether the rent and service fee have been paid and whether there are any significant expenditure in the near future on repairs or maintenance of the block.
It has been 4 months following my purchase conveyancing in Blackpool concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £175,000 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 asset 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.

New build sellers have put forward a property lawyer and I've received an estimate from them. It's nearly two hundred pounds cheaper than my local Blackpool conveyancing practitioner. Should I use them?
Housebuilders normally have panels of property lawyers who are quick and who know the seller’s documentation and property lawyer. Plenty of developers offer an incentive to choose a preferred conveyancer for this reason, any increased fees can be avoided and a developer won't recommend a conveyancing warehouse and run the risk of having the transaction stall when they want exchange inside a month. A counter-argument for not agreeing to use the recommended property lawyer is that they may prove unwilling to fight for your interests for fear of alienating the sellers. If you worry that this may be the case you should remain with your local Blackpool property lawyer.
