four months have gone by following my purchase conveyancing in Hereford concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site 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 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.

My husband and I are new on the property ladder - had an offer accepted, yet the selling agent informed us that the seller will only proceed if we use the agent's recommended solicitors as they want an ‘expedited deal’. We would rather use a family solicitor accustomed to conveyancing in Hereford

It is highly unlikely the sellers are driving this. If they require ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a motivated buyer is not the way to achieve this. Avoid the agents and go straight to the owners and explain that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to go, with finances arranged © you have nothing to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you are going to use your preferred Hereford conveyancing solicitors - not the ones that will provide the estate agent a introducer fee or hit his conveyancing figures pre-set by head office.

Having checked my lease I have discovered that there are only Fifty years left on my flat in Hereford. I am keen to extend my lease but my landlord is can not be found. What options are available to me?

If you meet the appropriate requirements, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will mean that your lease can be extended by the Court. However, you will be required to prove that you have done all that could be expected to find the freeholder. In some cases a specialist would be useful to conduct investigations and prepare an expert document which can be accepted by the court as proof that the landlord can not be located. It is wise to seek advice from a property lawyer in relation to devolving into the landlord’s disappearance and the vesting order request to the County Court covering Hereford.

I invested in buying a leasehold flat in Hereford, conveyancing formalities finalised February 2008. How much will my lease extension cost? Equivalent properties in Hereford with an extended lease are worth £186,000. The ground rent is £55 yearly. The lease ceases on 21st October 2076

You have 53 years remaining on your lease the likely cost is going to span between £27,600 and £31,800 plus costs.

The figure above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs in the absence of comprehensive due diligence. You should not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional issues that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action placing reliance on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
