It has been 3 months following my purchase conveyancing in Leicestershire 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 Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme.
