- House price different from land registry record?
I have just looked up our house on the Mouseprice ‘Sold Prices’ index and it is listed as having been bought for £190,000, whereas we bought it for £195,000. Does anyone know why this is? I was under the impression that Mouseprice get their data from the Land Registry, so it should be accurate, shouldn’t it?Posted 4 years agolongjMember
our house is shown on as the most expensive house on the street on these online land reg price things because land registry swapped two numbers in the transfer price record. even though land reg corrected the error the online price has always remained the previous inflated price. If you were provided with the deeds and documents from your solicitor, search out the TR1 which should show the that you paid 195k. if it shows 190k but you paid £195k then your solicitor has trousered the extra £5k. More likely an admin error though.Posted 4 years ago
longj, thanks – I checked out all the stuff from the solicitor and I did pay £195k so I found a section on the land registry site to email them and tell them about the error.
The price error may be material as a potential buyer may use the price you paid for the house to calculate their offer.
This is what I think and so it would be nice to have it recorded at the correct price. I know it’s only £5k which is relatively small as a percentage of the total value of the house but just think of the bike kit I could get with £5k!Posted 4 years ago
