Finally the sale completed on my house in Broughton last February but my buyer keeps Skype messaging every few hours to say their lawyer needs to hear from mine. What should have happened now that I have sold?
Following your house sale your solicitor should deliver the transfer deeds and all supplemental paperwork to the buyer’s solicitors. If applicable, your solicitor must also send confirmation that the mortgage has been paid off to the buyers lawyers. There is unlikely to be post completion steps specific conveyancing in Broughton.
My property lawyer in Broughton has never been on on the Clydesdale Conveyancing Panel. Is it possible for me to use my prefered solicitor even though they are excluded from the Clydesdale panel of approved conveyancing solicitors?
The limited options open to you here include:
- Complete the purchase with your existing Broughton lawyers but Clydesdale will need to use a lawyer on their list of acceptable firms. This will result in additional overall conveyancing charges as well as cause frustration.
- Choose an alternative solicitor to to deal with the conveyancing, remembering to check they are Persuade your lawyer to do everything within their powers to join the Clydesdale conveyancing panel
It has been 4 months following my purchase conveyancing in Broughton completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £215,000. 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.

I am looking to acquire a repossessed flat in Broughton and the bank selling require completion inside a month. Can a property lawyer complete in this timeframe? Am I best advised to instruct a high street Broughton firm or an online company that advertises to complete quickly?
Attend your Broughton high street. Pop in to two or three firms and request to talk to a conveyancing solicitor for an estimate. Set out your requirements and seek a commitment on time frames. Select the one that seems most efficient. You need to use a conveyancing practitioner on the list of conveyancing practitioners approved by your bank.
