I am planning to acquire a house and require a conveyancing solicitor in Oxton who is on the Bank of Scotland solicitor. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a firm?

It has been four months following my purchase conveyancing in Oxton took place. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £200,000 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 property 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 my first flat in Oxton benefiting from help to buy. The builders refused to reduce the amount so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The sale representative suggested that I not to tell my conveyancer about this extras as it will impact my loan with the bank. Should I keep quiet?.
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.
My husband and I are new to the buying process - had an offer accepted, yet the property agent informed us that the vendor will only proceed if we appoint their chosen solicitors as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a local solicitor with experience of conveyancing in Oxton
It is improbable the owners are driving this. If they desire ‘a quick sale', alienating a genuine buyer is counter productive. Try to communicate with the sellers directly and make sure they understand (a)you are serious purchasers (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances in place © you do not need to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you intend to instruct your preferred Oxton conveyancing firm - not the ones that will earn the negotiator at the agency a introducer fee or meet his conveyancing thresholds demanded by senior management.
Having checked my lease I have discovered that there are only Seventy years remaining on my lease in Oxton. I now want to get lease extension but my landlord is can not be found. What options are available to me?
If you qualify, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the County Court for for permission to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will enable the lease to be lengthened by the magistrate. You will be obliged to demonstrate that you have made all reasonable attempts to track down the freeholder.
