It has been five months following my purchase conveyancing in Much Wenlock concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £215,000. 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 looking for a flat up to £235,500 and found one round the corner in Much Wenlock I like with amenity areas and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 51 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Much Wenlock in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?

If you need a mortgage that many years may be problematic. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you can ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.
