Can you explain why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Northam costs more?

In short, leasehold conveyancing in Northam and Hampshire usually involve more due diligence compared to freehold conveyancing. This includes checking the lease terms, liaising with the landlord concerning serving applicable notices, procuring current service charge and management information, obtaining the landlord’s consents and reviewing management accounts. The obligations on both the landlord and the tenant in the lease need to be studied by the buyer’s conveyancing team and read from beginning to end – regardless of the fact the lease has passed through many different property solicitors hands since it was first entered into.

I have been told that property searches are the primary reason for delay in Northam conveyancing transactions. Is that correct?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) published determinations of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure amongst the common causes of delays during the legal transfer of property. Searches are unlikely to be the root cause of slowing down conveyancing in Northam.

It has been three months since my purchase conveyancing in Northam 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 premises 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.
