You can find lots of solicitors marketing theoretically looks to be cut price.

I am in the process of refinancing my property in Blackfen, does my lawyer need to be on the HSBC Solicitor panel?

There is nothing to stop you using your solicitor, but HSBC will insist on their interests being represented by a firm on their conveyancing panel. There is greater potential for delays and confusion with an additional lawyer added to the mix, and it will undoubtedly be more expensive too.

4 months have gone by following my purchase conveyancing in Blackfen completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £200,000 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.

I decided to have a survey carried out on a property in Blackfen prior to appointing solicitors. I have been told that there is a flying freehold aspect to the property. The surveyor advised that some lenders will refuse to issue a mortgage on such a premises.

It depends who your proposed lender is. HSBC has different instructions for example to Halifax. Should you wish to call us we can check with the appropriate lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Blackfen. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Blackfen to see if the conveyancing will be more expensive.
