My aunt passed away six months ago and as sole heir and executor I was left the property in Eaton Bray. The house had a relatively small loan remaining of approximately £4500. I want to transfer the title deeds into my name whilst I re-mortgage to Nationwide, pay off the mortgage. Is this possible?

Where you intend to refinance then Nationwide will require that you use a conveyancer on the Nationwide conveyancing panel. Here is link to the Land Registry online guidance around what to do when a property owner dies.

My conveyancer has informed me that missing deeds insurance is necessary on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Eaton Bray?

We have agreed to purchase a house in Eaton Bray. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Barclays have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?

Given that you are obtaining a mortgage with Barclays your lawyer must check the formal instructions set out in Part 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Barclays. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook includes minimum provisions for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancing practitioners are required to report to Barclays where a lease fails to satisfy these specifications. The provisions relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not isolated to Eaton Bray.

We were going to get a AIP from UBS this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc).

It has been three months following my purchase conveyancing in Eaton Bray completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £170,000. 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.
