I happen to be the sole recipient of my late father’s will and I have everything in my name now, including the my former home in Hale Barns. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in December. I plan to dispose of the house. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship may be considered the same way as though I had purchased the house in December. Is the property unsalable for six months?

The CML handbook mandates conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you might be caught by that. Some banks would take a pragmatic view as this obligation primarily exists to capture subsales or the wholesaling and assigning of properties.

I recently had an offer accepted on a house in Hale Barns. My financial adviser pressured me to appoint their conveyancing practitioner. I paid an upfront payment of £175. Shortly after, the property lawyer contacted me sheepishly admitting that they were not on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?

You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Coventry BS panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

It has been 3 months since my purchase conveyancing in Hale Barns took place. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 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 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.
