In the event thatI was to purchase a simple residential homein Isle of Sheppey mortgage fee and have no survey and no conveyancing searches how much could I expect to to save on my conveyancing in Isle of Sheppey?
The sole saving you would make on is the Isle of Sheppey conveyancing searches. A lawyer still be obliged to do everything else - money laundering, communicating with your sellers property lawyer, SDLT submission, register the title etc. A slight saving might be made by not needing to register a charge however it will not be significant.
I am considering applying for a Leeds Building Society mortgage for purchase of a new build (under development) in Isle of Sheppey with 60% LTV. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Leeds Building Society ?
There is nothing to stop you using your solicitor, but Leeds Building Society will insist on their interests being represented by a firm on their conveyancing panel. There is greater potential for delays and confusion with an additional lawyer added to the mix, and it will undoubtedly be more expensive too.
It has been five months following my purchase conveyancing in Isle of Sheppey completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £200,000 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 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.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £245,000 and found one near me in Isle of Sheppey I like with open areas and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 49 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Isle of Sheppey in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will be an issue. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.

I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Isle of Sheppey. Before I set the wheels in motion I want to be sure as to the number of years remaining on the lease.
Assuming the lease is registered - and almost all are in Isle of Sheppey - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
