It has been 3 months since my purchase conveyancing in Cheltenham completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £200,000 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 residence 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.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Cheltenham is the location of the property. Can you offer any advice?
Flying freeholds in Cheltenham are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Cheltenham you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Cheltenham may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.

I have just had an offer accepted on a leasehold flat in Cheltenham and the broker that we are using suggested his solicitor. They quoted nine hundred pounds excluding VAT and disbursements. Does this sound reasonable?
Don't just go on a single estimate. One should obtain like-for-like quotes for your conveyancing in Cheltenham. Then pick one that you are comfortable with and crucially, is on the approved panel of the mortgage company that you have applied for a mortgage from.
