I am searching for value for money conveyancer. Should I go for for a nationwide conveyancer rather than a high street Upton Park conveyancing lawyer?
On the whole conveyancing solicitors in your neck of the woods will have excellent alliances with your local authority, which could assist with the Upton Park conveyancing searches that your solicitor will require on your transaction. It can only be a plus if they enjoy good connections with the Land Registry covering your area Upton Park, other property lawyers in the location and Upton Park Estate Agents.

four months have elapsed since my purchase conveyancing in Upton Park concluded. 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 premises 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.

Last May I purchased a leasehold property in Upton Park. Do I have any liability for service charges for periods before completion of my purchase?
Where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous owner and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. However, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. A critical element of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to be sure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.
If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).
