My conveyancer has identified a a problem with the lease for the apartment we are buying in Copmanthorpe. The other side have offered defective title insurance as a solution. We are happy with insurance and will cover the costs. Our property lawyer says that he must be satisfied that the lender is willing to move forward with this solution. Are we the client or is the mortgage company ?
The short answer to your last question is that, notwithstanding the potential for a conflict of interest, you and the lender are the client. Your lawyer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications. The UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions require your lawyer to disclose issues such as defects with the lease so that the lender can be afforded the opportunity to check with their valuer as to the extent that the value of the property is affected. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your solicitor will have no choice but to discontinue acting for you.

It has been three months following my purchase conveyancing in Copmanthorpe took place. I have checked the Land Registry website 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 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 have been on the look out for a flat up to £195,000 and found one near me in Copmanthorpe I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, however it only has 52 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Copmanthorpe suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?
If you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will be problematic. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this.
