It has been four months following my purchase conveyancing in Stockwood took place. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 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 was pointed in your direction by numerous property agents in Stockwood to find a conveyancer on your site. What’s the financial incentive for Estate Agents to market your lawyers over and above alternative conveyancing organisations?
We don’t offer any commission for pointing buyers and sellers our way. We thought it would be too underhand a fee because home movers will think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not getting any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.
How does one remove a deceased person's name from the title deeds for a property in Stockwood?
If a Stockwood property is jointly owned and one of the proprietors dies, the name will not automatically be removed from the title deeds. It is not necessary to amend the title as when it comes to a disposal you would just be required to evidence why the joint owner is missing from the transfer, such as the probate documents.
With the aim of making things simpler for the sale of the property you can apply to have the deceased person removed from the title by applying to HMLR with proof of the death. There is no land registry fee payable.
