Completed the sale of my flat in West Dulwich last July yet the purchaser is whats apping daily complaining that her lawyer is waiting to hear from mine. What should my lawyer have done following completion?
Post completion of your house sale your lawyer is duty bound to send the transfer deeds and all of the paperwork to the purchaser's lawyers. Where relevant, your solicitor must also evidence that the legal charge in favour of the lender has been paid off to the purchasers conveyancers. There are no post completion formalities just for conveyancing in West Dulwich.
We are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our home in West Dulwich and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being constructed land that was not decontaminated. A high street West Dulwich conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers are using a factory type conveyancing firm as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in West Dulwich. Having lived in West Dulwich for 4 years we know that this is a non issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to seek clarification that there is no issue.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor already. Are they able to advise? You must check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same illness)
It has been 4 months since my purchase conveyancing in West Dulwich completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 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 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.
