Please help. My Willesden conveyancer is advising me that he has toorder Willesden conveyancing searches becausethe firm are on the Nat Westapproved lawyer panel. Do I not have any options here?
Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. As you are obtaining a home loan with a mortgage company your conveyancing practitioner has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your property lawyer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook specifications . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Willesden conveyancing searches.
three months have gone by following my purchase conveyancing in Willesden completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £180,000. 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.

But there are numerous people with a vested interest in a conveyancing deal; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage companies might all put forward conveyancers to retain. Sometimes the lawyers might be known to one of the organisations as one of the best in their field, but occasionally there is an underlying commercial relationship behind the recommendation. You have the discretion to choose your preferred conveyancer. Don't forget that many mortgage providers specify a panel list of lawyers you are obliged to use for the mortgage related work in your conveyancing.

The Land Registry by statute are bound to reveal price paid data on a register of the title for domestic properties countrywide which includes homes in Willesden. The register of ownership is an open document, so HM Land Registry would be breaching their statutory duty if they failed to permit access to the register.
You can ask HMLR to hide the price paid data yet the response will be a No.
