3 months have gone by since my purchase conveyancing in Gants Hill took place. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £180,000. 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.

I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and found one near me in Gants Hill I like with amenity areas and railway links nearby, the downside is that it only has 52 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Gants Hill suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.
