I went with a Petts Wood based firm for my conveyancing in Petts Wood recently. After carefully reading the official terms of business it is apparent thatI am on the hook for fees even where the conveyance does not complete. Would I be best advised to instruct an internet lawyer offering no completion no cost conveyancing in Petts Wood?
It is usually ‘give and take’ in that if "No Sale No Fee" is advertised then the conveyancing charges will generally be higher to neutralise those cases that abort. Dont forget that such deals tend not to cover disbursements such your Petts Wood conveyancing search charges.
4 months have gone by following my purchase conveyancing in Petts Wood completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £200,000 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 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.

There are a number of properties in Petts Wood on unadopted roads. I am purchasing such a house. What are the pros and cons of purchasing a property on a privately owned road?
Petts Wood conveyancing lawyers are familiar with dealing homeson private. The property lawyer should investigate title to identify any rights or responsibilities. In many cases there is a management company (wholly owned by residents) that residents pay into to maintain the road. If there is one, the road will likely be maintained and look nicer than publicly adopted.
