It has been 2 months since my purchase conveyancing in Peacehaven concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £215,000. 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.

Myself and my fiance have recently had an offer agreed on a house and had an appointment on Monday with the Post Office for the mortgage. They warned us that when it comes to appointing a conveyancing practitioner that if they are not on their approved list of lawyers then we will incur an additional charge of £250+. This is is due to the fact that they will then have to select a property lawyer to act on their behalf in addition to the one we choose to act on our behalf and we will be on the hook for their fees. I have requested the Post Office to send me with a list so I can obtain quotes only from their approved solicitors but was told that I need to check with each individual conveyancer to see if they are on the panel. What would be the best way of going about this?

Ask the Post Office what their criteria for panel membership is for a solicitor.Then ask the lawyer of your choice whether they fit that criteria and have they acted on loans for the Post Office in the past. Where the answer to those is yes, then just clarify this with the Post Office. Another option is to use our search tool and we may be able to find you a lawyer in Peacehaven on the panel for the Post Office.
