My brother-in-law has suggested I instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Johnstown. I I would like to check if they are on the Bank of Ireland approved list of lawyers. Could you assist?
You should phone your solicitor and enquire if they are on the lender panel. Otherwise please call Bank of Ireland who may be able to assist.
2 months have elapsed following my purchase conveyancing in Johnstown took place. 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've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in two weeks back in what was supposed to be a simple, no chain conveyancing. Johnstown is the location of the property. Can you offer any assistance?
Flying freeholds in Johnstown are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses.

Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy.

If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
