We decided to purchase a 3 bedroom apartment in Tiptree with a homeloan from Barclays Direct.We have a Tiptree conveyancing lawyer but Barclays Direct informed us he's not on their "panel". It seems we have little choice but to instruct a Barclays Direct panel solicitor or retain our preferred solicitor and pay for one of their panel ones to act for them. We feel as though this is unjust; Can we not simply insist that Barclays Direct use our lawyer?
Unfortunately,no. The loan offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that solicitors must be on the Barclays Direct solicitor panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Barclays Direct
It has been 2 months following my purchase conveyancing in Tiptree concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £180,000. 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 residence 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 am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Tiptree. Before diving in I would like to find out the remaining lease term.
If the lease is recorded at the land registry - and most are in Tiptree - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more comprehensive investigations. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt additional concerns that need to be taken into account and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action based on this information without first getting professional advice.
