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.

Your conveyancing practitioner will unlikely have any impact over the level of the bill for this information but the typical costs for the information for Cranfield leasehold property is £380.
