It has been 2 months following my purchase conveyancing in Taffs Well concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £180,000. Why the discrepancy?

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.

We refuse to give any referral fee for directing people to this site. We found it would be just too difficult a fee as members of the public would 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.

It is highly unlikely the owners are driving this. Should the seller desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a motivated buyer is likely to cause more damage than good. Speak to the owners direct and make the point that (a)you are genuine purchasers (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances in place © you are unencumbered (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you are going to use your preferred Taffs Well conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will give their estate agent a commission or meet his conveyancing targets pre-set by head office.
