It has been 4 months following my purchase conveyancing in Goodrich concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £180,000. Why the discrepancy?

It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the property 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.

Can you provide any top tips for leasehold conveyancing in Goodrich with the purpose of saving time on the sale process?
- A significant proportion of the frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Goodrich can be bypassed if you get in touch lawyers the minute your agents start marketing the property and request that they start to collate the leasehold information needed by the purchasers’ solicitors. If you are supposed to have a share in the freehold, you should make sure that you have the original share document. Arranging a replacement share certificate can be a time consuming process and delays many a Goodrich conveyancing deal.

In the circumstances it is essential at an as soon as possible that you identify whether the lease for your property needs extending. If it does, contact your solicitors before you put your home on the market for sale. A minority of Goodrich leases require Landlord’s consent to the sale and approval of the buyers. If this is the case, you should notify your estate agents to make sure that the purchasers put in hand financial (bank) and professional references.

You will therefore need to provide your estate agents with the service charge figures so that they can pass this information on to the buyers or their solicitors.
