You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Peckham or throughout England and Wales is an adversarial experience.

3 months have elapsed following my purchase conveyancing in Peckham concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £175,000 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 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.

Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my 2 bed flat in Peckham. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, however I have recently received a yearly service charge demand – Do I pay up?
The sensible thing to do is pay the invoice as usual because all ground rent and service invoices should be apportioned on completion, so you will be reimbursed by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
