What is the first thing I need to know regarding purchase conveyancing in Hall Green?
You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Hall Green or throughout England and Wales is often a confrontational experience. Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there is plenty of room for confrontation between you and others involved in the legal transfer of property. For instance, the vendor, estate agent and even potentially your bank. Appointing a lawyer for your conveyancing in Hall Green should not be taken lightly as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONE person in the transaction whose role it is to look after your legal interests and to keep you safe.
Sometimes a third party with a vested interest will try and persuade you that it is in your interests to do things their way. As an example, the selling agent may claim to be helping by claiming that your conveyancer is dragging his heels. Or your financial adviser may tell you to do something that is against your conveyancers guidance. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties when it comes to the legal transfer of property.
It has been 4 months following my purchase conveyancing in Hall Green completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £170,000. 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.
I opted to have a survey carried out on a property in Hall Green prior to appointing solicitors. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold overhang to the property. My surveyor advised that some lenders will refuse to give a loan on such a house.
