I am in the market for a low cost conveyancer. Should I go for for a web based conveyancer rather than a family Clapton conveyancing lawyer?
Generally conveyancing solicitors in your neck of the woods will have excellent relationships with your local authority, which can assist with your Clapton conveyancing searches that your lawyer will need to carry out. It can only assist if they have strong connections with the Local Land Registry Office your area Clapton, other property lawyers in the neighbourhood and Clapton selling agents.
I am buying a flat and need a conveyancing solicitor in Clapton who is on the Virgin Money conveyancing. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a conveyancing firm?

It has been 2 months since my purchase conveyancing in Clapton completed. I have checked the Land Registry site 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 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.
How does conveyancing in Clapton differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Clapton approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is built. This is because developers in Clapton typically acquire the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Clapton or who has acted in the same development.
