I have telephoned my Lechlade building society branch on a couple of occasions and was told it does not impact the mortgage offer and they will lend. My Lechlade conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they refuse to lend in accordance with their published requirements. I have no idea who is right.

Your conveyancer must follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook Part 2 requirements for your lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.

Your estate agent will want to be informed of your property lawyer's details (be sure the property lawyers are on the bank’s panel). Telephone Nationwide or the financial adviser and complete any relevant forms. Nationwide will appoint a valuer who will get in contact with the estate agent or owners to arrange a time for the valuation to take place.

It is usual to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (home loan application is approx £1k, then survey, Lechlade conveyancing search fees, etc). The first thing to do is ensure that your conveyancing practitioner is on the Nationwide approved list. Concerning the next phase this very much depends on the uniqueness of your transaction, attraction to the property and on the state of the market. In a rising market many buyers will apply for a home loan with Nationwide and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they ask their solicitor to proceed with searches.

five months have elapsed following my purchase conveyancing in Lechlade took place. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £170,000. 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 am buying my first flat in Lechlade benefiting from help to buy. The developers would not move on the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of extras instead.
