My wife and I have recently appointed a conveyancing solicitor in Rainford. I I am struggling to find out whether they are accepted on the Barclays approved list of lawyers. Could you help?
You should contact your conveyancer and ask them whether they are on the lender panel. Otherwise please call Barclays who may be able to assist.
three months have elapsed since my purchase conveyancing in Rainford completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £170,000. 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 property 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.
How easy is it to transfer to a new conveyancer as I need to instruct one who is on the Coventry Building Society conveyancing list. I hired a high street conveyancing solicitor in Rainford five minutes from me but he is not approved by Coventry Building Society

Can you offer any advice when it comes to appointing a Rainford conveyancing firm to carry out our lease extension conveyancing?
If you are instructing a conveyancer for your lease extension (regardless if they are a Rainford conveyancing firm) it is essential that he or she should be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of conveyancing. We recommend that you talk with two or three firms including non Rainford conveyancing practices before you instructing a firm. Where the conveyancing practice is ALEP accredited then that’s a bonus. The following questions could be of use:
Can they put you in touch with clients in Rainford who can give a testimonial?
I am the registered owner of a 2 bed flat in Rainford, conveyancing formalities finalised 6 years ago. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Similar flats in Rainford with an extended lease are worth £202,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £60 invoiced every year. The lease finishes on 21st October 2075
You have 56 years left to run we estimate the price of your lease extension to span between £29,500 and £34,000 plus legals.
The figure above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to provide the actual costs in the absence of comprehensive investigations. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other issues that need to be considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
