I sincerely hope you can assist me. My Lytchett Matravers conveyancer is advising me that he has toconduct Lytchett Matravers conveyancing searches stemming from the fact thatthe firm are on the Lloydsapproved lawyer panel. Is this really necessary?
Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. As you are obtaining a mortgage with a bank your solicitor has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your solicitor would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to follow the CML Handbook specifications . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Lytchett Matravers conveyancing searches.
At what point will exchange of contracts occur in purchase conveyancing in Lytchett Matravers and am I required to be at the solicitors branch?
If you are near to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Lytchett Matravers you are invited in to sign documents. That being said, the firms we work with offer a national conveyancing service and give as equally comprehensive and professional a job for you when dealing with you by post or email. The signing of the contract is not the point of no return. A signed contract simply enables the solicitor to exchange contracts when the time is right, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The procedure is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a lengthy "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Lytchett Matravers)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.

five months have elapsed since my purchase conveyancing in Lytchett Matravers took place. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £180,000. 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 residence 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 should have been a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Lytchett Matravers is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?

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 property.
