There are some other issues such as the level of excess that are set out in a lender’s Part 2 conditions. These obligations are not limited to conveyancing in New Invention.

I can not work out if my mortgage offer requires a lease extension. I have telephoned my New Invention bank branch on a couple of occasions and was reassured it wasn't a problem and they will lend.

As long as the conveyancer is on the mortgage company panel, she or he must follow the CML Handbook requirements for the lender.

We would suggest that you ask the bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

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.
