My Conveyancer in Hazlemere is not on the Accord Mortgages Ltd Solicitor Panel. Is it possible for me to retain my family solicitor notwithstanding that they are not on the Accord Mortgages Ltd panel?

3 months have gone by since my purchase conveyancing in Hazlemere completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £160,000. 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 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.

How does conveyancing in Hazlemere differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Hazlemere approach us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because builders in Hazlemere tend to purchase the site, 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 conveyancers 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Hazlemere or who has acted in the same development.

Am I better off to appoint a Hazlemere conveyancing lawyer based in the vicinity that I am buying? An old friend can execute the conveyancing but his firm is located 200miles drive away.

The primary upside of using a high street Hazlemere conveyancing practice is that you can drop in to sign documents, present your identification documents and apply pressure on them where appropriate. They will also have local knowledge which is a benefit. That being said nothing is more important than finding someone that will do a good and efficient job. If other friends have used your friend and on the whole were happy that must surpass using an unknown Hazlemere conveyancing solicitor solely due to them being based in the area.
