4 months have elapsed since my purchase conveyancing in Alnmouth completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £170,000. 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 premises 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.

How does conveyancing in Alnmouth differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Alnmouth contact us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is finished. This is because new home sellers in Alnmouth usually purchase the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Alnmouth or who has acted in the same development.

My aim is to purchase a ground floor flat in Alnmouth. Conveyancing solicitor is waiting for, from the vendor, building insurance documents. Earlier today I was informed that the seller needs to send the insurance paperwork for the flat above as well. Why would my solicitor need to review the insurance for the other flat? Is it really required? We have been in hold for the previous month…

It is not impossible in leasehold conveyancing in Alnmouth to discover Conveyancing in Alnmouth in a minority of cases reveals that the lease obliges the tenant's to insure their individual flats as opposed to the landlord insuring the whole premises - which is clearly better. Do check with your solicitor but it would seem that your conveyancer is looking to verify that the entire building is insured. Insuring your apartment is no help when it comes to rebuilding after a fire if the 1st floor cannot be reconstructed for lack of insurance cover.
