My fiancee and I are spending time viewing apartments in Surrey and I am now considering a potential offer. Is it best to have a conveyancer on ‘stand by’? I intend to finance via a home loan with UBS.
You should start obtaining conveyancing quotes from solicitors ASAP. After you have chosen your lawyer and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and forward their details on to the EA. As you are obtaining a mortgage with UBS, make sure you remember to check that your lawyer is on the UBS conveyancing panel.

five months have elapsed following my purchase conveyancing in Surrey completed. I have checked the Land Registry website 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.
