What is the difference between a licensed conveyancer and conveyancing solicitor in Lewisham

There are many recorded licenced Conveyancers in Lewisham and Solicitor firms in Lewisham who provide Conveyancing services It is important to make clear that both are regulated professionals specialising in the legal aspects of the home buying process. They may both also conduct associated property related work such as remortgage conveyancing, lease extensions and transfer of equity conveyancing.

I can not work out if my bank obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called into my local Lewisham building society branch on numerous occasions and was told it wasn't an issue and they will lend. My Lewisham conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- called to say that they refuse to lend based on their specific requirements. Who do I believe?

Provided that the property lawyer is on the bank panel, she or he must comply with the CML Handbook requirements for the bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the mortgage company to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.

It has been four months since my purchase conveyancing in Lewisham completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £175,000 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.
