Just contacted my conveyancing lawyer in Bishop Auckland who completed the legal work 18 months ago and wanted a conveyancing costs illustration based on an identical type of home move (a leasehold property and a freehold property) of similar values with a home loan from TSB. It looks as though am now being charged double. Better the devil I know or should I seek out an alternative firm of conveyancing solicitor?

It has been 4 months following my purchase conveyancing in Bishop Auckland completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £180,000. Why the discrepancy?

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.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and found one near me in Bishop Auckland I like with a park and transport links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 52 remaining years left on the lease.

If you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this.
