I selected a Mumbles based lawyer for my conveyancing in Mumbles today. Going through the Terms it is apparent thatI am on the hook for costs even if our purchase doesn't happen. Should I go with them or instruct an internet lawyer advertising no move no charge conveyancing in Mumbles?
It is usually a trade off in that if "No Completion No Fee" is available then the conveyancing charges will generally be uplifted to cover the cases that abort. Please beware that such schemes tend not to protect you from outlay e.g. Mumbles conveyancing search costs.
I appreciate that there are debates on Chancel Insurance on online forums. Do I need this when purchasing a house in Mumbles? or I am told that there is historic law that could mean that homeowners living in a parish church boundary may be liable to pay for maintenance towards the chancel in proximity to the church. Is this appropriate for conveyancing in Mumbles?
Unless a previous purchase of the premises completed post 12 October 2013 you may expect lawyers conducting conveyancing in Mumbles to remain recommending a chancel search and or chancel repair liability insurance.
It has been 3 months since my purchase conveyancing in Mumbles took place. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £200,000 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.

Assuming the lease is recorded at the land registry - and 99.9% are in Mumbles - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
