four months have gone by since my purchase conveyancing in Great Dunmow 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 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.
I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £305k and identified one near me in Great Dunmow I like with a park and transport links nearby, however it's only got 49 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Great Dunmow suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?
If you need a home loan that many years may be an issue. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.
