2 months have elapsed since my purchase conveyancing in Putney completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase.

All being well we will complete the sale of our £175,000 garden flat in Putney next week.

Your conveyancer will have no control over the level of the charges for this information but the average costs for the information for Putney leasehold premises is £350. For Putney conveyancing transactions it is customary for the seller to pay for these costs.
