Your property lawyer will review the deeds as conveyancing in St Werburghs will sometimes reveal restrictions in the title documents which prevent certain works or require the consent of another owner.

Many areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or affect extensions. It would be wise to check these things with a surveyor prior to committing yourself to a purchase.

Two weeks ago we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Co-operative. St Werburghs conveyancing lawyers were selected. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Co-operative?

I can not fathom if my bank requires a lease extension. I have called my St Werburghs building society branch on various occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they will lend. My St Werburghs conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- called to say that they refuse to lend in accordance with their published requirements. I have no idea who is right.

Your solicitor must follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook section two conditions for your lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the mortgage company to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

It has been 3 months following my purchase conveyancing in St Werburghs concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £175,000 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 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.
