Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Hyde Park

The vendors of the home we are purchasing hired a conveyancing firm in Hyde Park who has suggested a preliminary contract with a down payment two thousand pounds. Are such arrangements the norm for Hyde Park conveyancing transactions?

There are a couple of primary concerns with executing a lock out agreement (also known as a no-shop agreement) is that it takes away the focus from making progress with the conveyancing transaction itself, so unless it requires little or no negotiation then it may transpire to be a cause of frustration and delay. It is not particularly popular by Hyde Park conveyancing practitioners for this reason. A further negative is the extent of the remedies available - a jilted purchaser is not likely to be granted an injunction to prevent the vendor disposing of the property to another buyer, so the only remedy open via the contract will be the recovery of wasted costs and, in rare situations, the additional payment of damages.

2 months have elapsed since my purchase conveyancing in Hyde Park completed. 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.
