Me and my fiance are acquiring a leasehold flat in Rusholme. My property lawyer has never been on on the lender approved panel. Can I still appoint my Rusholme conveyancing solicitor even though they are not on the lender panel of approved conveyancing solicitors?
Various options include
- Complete the purchase with your chosen Rusholme conveyancing practitioner but your mortgage company will need to instruct a conveyancer from their approved panel. The net result is additional cost and potential interruption.
- Appoint a fresh property lawyer to act in the purchase, obviously checking they are on the mortgage company conveyancing panel.
- Convince your conveyancing practitioner to seek to join the bank panel
five months have gone by following my purchase conveyancing in Rusholme completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 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 asset 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.

The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. Please supply a car parking plan. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose?
