Your conveyancing practitioner has to comply with the CML Handbook section two specifications for your lender.

We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.

My sealed bid on a house in Epworth has been agreed to, the vendors do however have a dependent purchase. The sellers have offered on a flat, but it’s not yet agreed to, and are looking at other apartments booked. I have chosen a local conveyancing solicitor in Epworth. What should be my next step? When do I get the mortgage application with TSB started?

It is normal to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses too early (home loan application is in the region of £1k, then valuation, Epworth conveyancing search charges, etc). First, you should ensure that your property lawyer is on the TSB conveyancing panel. Regarding the next steps this very much dictated by the circumstances of your transaction, desire for the property and on the state of the market. In a hot market many home buyers will apply for the mortgage with TSB and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they request their property lawyer to move forward with searches.

4 months have gone by since my purchase conveyancing in Epworth concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?

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.
