I am under pressure from the mortgagee in possession of a property in Elmswell to exchange within four weeks. What can I do to expedite matters?
In a situation where you are under a tight deadline to sign contracts it is advisable to make sure that your lawyer is familiar with the area as they will have local contacts and know-how. It is possible that they would have transacted previousproperties in the same road. You would be best advised to use a Elmswell conveyancing lawyer. In addition, be sure that the lawyer is on the lender panel. It is understood that 18% of Elmswell conveyancing transactions are delayed or derailed after discovering a buyer’s solicitor was not on their banks list of approved solicitors. In many cases this discovery resulted in the conveyancing being held up by almost three weeks. It is understood that this issue affects approximately one hundred thousand home sales annually. Most Elmswell conveyancing practices can not act for certain banks so do check at the outset.
I have been recommended a conveyancing solicitor in Elmswell. I I am struggling to find out if they are accepted on the Yorkshire Building Society approved list of lawyers. Could you help?

three months have gone by following my purchase conveyancing in Elmswell completed. I have checked the Land Registry website 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.
