Is it necessary to take out insurance to address the risk of chancel repairs when acquiring a house in Gerrards Cross and Chalfont?

four months have gone by since my purchase conveyancing in Gerrards Cross and Chalfont concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site 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 asset 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 am looking for a flat up to £235,500 and identified one round the corner in Gerrards Cross and Chalfont I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 61 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Gerrards Cross and Chalfont suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?
Should you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.
I have been advised by numerous property agents in Gerrards Cross and Chalfont to select a conveyancer using your seach tool. Is there a financial upside for Estate Agents to recommend your services ahead of alternative conveyancing organisations?
We don’t give any financial incentive for pointing buyers and sellers our way. We thought it would be too underhand a fee as a client could think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not receiving any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.
