Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Filton

four months have elapsed since my purchase conveyancing in Filton concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £180,000. 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.

How does conveyancing in Filton differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Filton contact us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is ready to move into. This is because new home sellers in Filton typically acquire the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Filton or who has acted in the same development.

The conveyancing solicitors undertaking our conveyancing in Filton has sent documents to review that show the land is unregistered with epitome documents. Why is the property not yet recorded at the Land Registry?

The majority of property in Filton is registered. An 'epitome' is basically a dossier of photocopies of documents affecting an unregistered title. Many Filton conveyancing solicitors should be familiar with this type of conveyancing but where uncertainty exists the prevailing recommendation these days is for the seller to deal with the registration formalities first and then deal with the disposal - this will have a knock on effect to cause a prolonged conveyancing.
