The property market in Silverton is heating up. What can be done to speed up the conveyancing process?
In a situation where you are under time constraints for your conveyancing it is advisable to make sure that your conveyancer is familiar with the location as they will make use of local relationships and know-how. It is even conceivable that they would have conducted previousproperties in the same road. Therefore consider using a Silverton conveyancing firm. Second, be sure that the lawyer is on the lender panel. It is claimed that just under twenty per cent of Silverton conveyancing deals are frustrated or derailed after discovering a buyer’s lawyer was not on their banks member panel. In many cases this discovery resulted in the home move being frustrated by an average of three weeks. It is claimed that this issue impacts approximately 100,000 home sales annually. Many Silverton conveyancing practices can not act for certain mortgage companies so do check as early as possible.
three months have gone by following my purchase conveyancing in Silverton completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £200,000 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.

I am an executor of my recently deceased mum’s Will, with a bungalow in Silverton which will be marketed. The property is unregistered at the Land Registry and I'm advised that some estate agents will insist that it is in place before they'll proceed. What's the procedure for this?
In the circumstances you refer to it seems sensible to seek to register in the names of the personal representative(s) as named in the probate and in their capacity as PRs. The Land Registry’s online guidance explains how to register for the first time and what is required re the deeds and forms. You would need to include and official copy of the probate as well and complete the form FR1 to refer to the PRs as the applicant.
