My wife and I are approaching an exchange on a property in Launceston and my parents have transferred the exchange deposit to my solicitor. I am now told that as the deposit has been sent from someone other than me my lawyer needs to disclose this to my mortgage company. Apparently, in also acting for the mortgage company he must advise them that the balance of the purchase price is not just from me. I disclosed to the bank about my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really appropriate for him to raise this?
The property lawyer is obliged to clarify with lender to make sure that they are aware that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. Your solicitor can only disclose this to your bank if you agree, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.
3 months have gone by since my purchase conveyancing in Launceston concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £150,000 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 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.

I am on look out for some leasehold conveyancing in Launceston. Before diving in I want to be sure as to the unexpired term of the lease.
If the lease is recorded at the land registry - and 99.9% are in Launceston - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details 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.
