I have given 2 months notice to my existing landlord and must vacate my rented property in Barnehurst by 25/1/2024. Conveyancing for my house purchase is progressing. Is it possible to complete in 4 weeks as I wish to avoid having to find short term accommodation?

It has been 4 months since my purchase conveyancing in Barnehurst 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 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.
I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and identified one close by in Barnehurst I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 61 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Barnehurst in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?
If you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be an issue. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you may ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.
I am four weeks into a leasehold purchase having been referred to solicitors by the high street agent to handle our conveyancing in Barnehurst. We are not happy. Can you help me find new lawyers?
A lawyer would have to be very poor in order to consider replacing them. Has your mortgage offer been issued? In the event that it has you must inform them of the new conveyancer and ensure the mortgage documents are re-issued. Your new conveyancer needs to be on the mortgage company panel to avoid added expenses and delays. So that should be your starting point.
