I require conveyancing for a flat in a fairly new development (five years built) in Brockenhurst. Almost all the properties are already sold. Is it really necessary to order conveyancing searches for my conveyancing in Brockenhurst?
If you getting a mortgage, your bank will insist on some (many) of the searches so you'll have no choice. If not, then Brockenhurst conveyancing searches are optional. No doubt your conveyancer, will 'advise', perhaps strongly, that you should not go ahead without searches, but he or she is duty bound in this regard. One thing to bear in mind; if you are likely to sell the house one day, it may be of interest to your future buyer what the searches contain. Sometimes houses with no practical issues can still throw up adverse search results. But if you demand that your lawyer to proceed without searches then your lawyer will have to follow your instructions or you may need to find a new lawyer for your conveyancing in Brockenhurst.

It has been five months following my purchase conveyancing in Brockenhurst concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site 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 asset 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 £305k and identified one round the corner in Brockenhurst I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 61 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Brockenhurst suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?
Should you require a home loan that many years will be problematic. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you can ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.
