three months have elapsed following my purchase conveyancing in King's Cross completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £180,000. 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.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and found one near me in King's Cross I like with a park and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 61 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in King's Cross for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be problematic. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you could request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.
