The housing market in Papworth Everard is hotting up. What can be done to quicken up the buying process?
First, If you are under time constraints to sign contracts we would recommend that your lawyer is familiar with the location as they will benefit local contacts and intelligence. It is possible that they may have conducted otherhouses in the same road. Therefore consider using a Papworth Everard conveyancing firm. In addition, double check that the conveyancing firm is on the lender panel.

five months have gone by since my purchase conveyancing in Papworth Everard took place. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £160,000. 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.
I was pointed in your direction by numerous selling agents in Papworth Everard to select a solicitor using your seach tool. Is there a financial inducement for Estate Agents to market your lawyers over and above alternative conveyancing organisations?
We don’t make any commission for pointing buyers and sellers in our direction. We thought it would be too underhand a fee because members of the public would think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I getting any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.
