I plan on acquiring property in Hyde Park. My property lawyer is not on the mortgage company conveyancing panel. Is it possible for me to use my Hyde Park conveyancing solicitor even though they are not on the lender panel of approved conveyancing solicitors?

You have a couple of choices open to you here

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.
