I plan on buying a maisonette in West London. My Solicitor is not on the lender conveyancing panel. Am I still permitted to appoint my West London conveyancing solicitor notwithstanding that they are not on the mortgage company approved list?
Various options include
- Complete the deal with your chosen West London property lawyer but your mortgage company will undoubtedly use a property lawyer from their approved panel. The net result is additional cost and potential interruption.
- Choose a fresh property lawyer to act in the purchase, making sure they are on the bank conveyancing panel.

It has been 4 months since my purchase conveyancing in West London completed. I have checked the Land Registry site 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 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.
