2 months have elapsed since my purchase conveyancing in Thornbury took place. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £160,000. 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.
I decided to have a survey carried out on a property in Thornbury prior to retaining solicitors. I have been told that there is a flying freehold element to the property. Our surveyor advised that some mortgage companies may refuse to give a loan on this type of premises.

I am 3 weeks into a leasehold purchase having been directed to conveyancers by the local agent to do our conveyancing in Thornbury. I am not happy. Can you you assist me in finding new conveyancers?
A conveyancer would need to be really poor to suggest changing them. Has your mortgage been sent? In the event that it has you will need to advise them of the new contact details and ensure the offer are issued to the new lawyers. Your new conveyancer should be on the lenders panel to avoid supplemental fees and complications. That should be your first question of the new lawyers.

Developers have suggested I use a conveyancer and I've sought an estimate from them. It's nearly £300 less expensive than my preferred Thornbury conveyancing practitioner. What's the catch?
Builders often have lists of conveyancers who are quick and who know the builder's paperwork and solicitor. As many developers offer an incentive to select a preferred conveyancer for this reason, any increased fees can be avoided and a builder won't suggest a conveyancing warehouse and run the risk of having the conveyancing delayed when they want exchange within a tight time frame. The argument for not agreeing to use the recommended solicitor is that they may prove reluctant to 'push' your interests for fear of alienating the developer. Where you have concerns that this may be the case you should keep with your high street Thornbury lawyer.
