It has been 2 months since my purchase conveyancing in Dorchester completed. 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.

Am I right to be suspicious about estate agents that I am dealing with are encouraging me to use a nationwide conveyancing firm as opposed to a local Dorchester conveyancing firm?
As with lots of service providers, often input from connections can be extremely useful or valuable. But there are many people with a vested interest in a conveyancing deal; estate agents, financial adviser and mortgage companies may suggest solicitors to select. Sometimes these conveyancers might be known to one of the organisations as one of the best in their field, but occasionally there might be a commercial relationship behind the recommendation. You have the right to appoint your own lawyer. You need to be aware that many lenders specify a panel list of conveyancers you must use for the mortgage aspect of your conveyancing.
I've recently bought a leasehold flat in Dorchester. Do I have any liability for service charges relating to a period prior to completion of my purchase?
Where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous lessee and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. However, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. It is an essential part of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to be sure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.
If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).
