four months have gone by following my purchase conveyancing in Dunmow concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £160,000. 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.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £305k and found one near me in Dunmow I like with a park and station nearby, the downside is that it only has 52 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Dunmow suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?

If you require a mortgage that many years will likely be problematic. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you may ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.

Am I right to be suspicious by brokers that I am dealing with are recommending a web based conveyancing firm as opposed to a High Street Dunmow conveyancing company?

As with lots of service providers, often referrals from connections can be very helpful. But there are many parties with a vested interest in a conveyancing matter; estate agents, mortgage brokers and lenders may put forward lawyers to retain. Sometimes the lawyers might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but sometimes there exists a financial incentive behind the recommendation. You are free to select your preferred lawyer. Don't forget that many lenders specify a panel list of lawyers you are obliged to use for the mortgage aspect of your transaction.
