Recently been in touch with my conveyancing lawyer in Knightsbridge who completed the legal work two years ago asking for a conveyancing costs illustration based on an identical type of house sale & purchase (a leasehold premises and a freehold premises) of almost identical values with a home loan from Clydesdale. It looks as though am now being charged twice the amount. Better the devil I know or should I seek out an alternative firm of conveyancing solicitor?

four months have gone by since my purchase conveyancing in Knightsbridge completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £200,000 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 residence 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.

I'm buying a new build house in Knightsbridge benefiting from help to buy. The developers would not move on the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The sale representative suggested that I not to tell my lawyer about the side-deal as it will adversely affect my mortgage with the lender. Is this normal?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £195,000 and found one near me in Knightsbridge I like with open areas and station nearby, the downside is that it only has 51 years on the lease. There is not much else in Knightsbridge in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be problematic. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you may ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.
