We instructed a high street solicitor for our conveyancing in Amersham today. Reviewing the official terms of business I seewe are liable for costs even where the transaction does not complete. Would I be best advised to appoint a web based conveyancing company offering no completion no charge conveyancing in Amersham?
Generally there is a concession along the lines that if "No Completion No Fee" is available then the conveyancing charges will tend to be be uplifted to counteract those transactions that abort. You should be mindful that such arrangements generally do not protect you from expenses e.g. Amersham conveyancing search expenses.
I am thinking of remortgaging my property in Amersham, does my lawyer need to be on the Bank of Ireland Solicitor panel?
There is nothing to stop you using your solicitor, but Bank of Ireland will insist on their interests being represented by a firm on their conveyancing panel. There is greater potential for delays and confusion with an additional lawyer added to the mix, and it will undoubtedly be more expensive too.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £245,000 and found one round the corner in Amersham I like with open areas and railway links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 49 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Amersham suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?
If you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be problematic. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.
What does commercial conveyancing in Amersham cover?

Having checked my lease I have discovered that there are only Seventy years left on my lease in Amersham. I now wish to extend my lease but my freeholder is can not be found. What should I do?
If you meet the appropriate requirements, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will enable the lease to be extended by the Court. However, you will be required to prove that you have used your best endeavours to track down the freeholder. In some cases an enquiry agent may be helpful to try and locate and to produce a report which can be accepted by the court as evidence that the landlord can not be located. It is advisable to get professional help from a conveyancer in relation to investigating the landlord’s absence and the application to the County Court covering Amersham.
I bought a garden flat in Amersham, conveyancing was carried out 10 years ago. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Similar properties in Amersham with over 90 years remaining are worth £185,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £65 per annum. The lease finishes on 21st October 2081
With just 60 years left to run we estimate the price of your lease extension to span between £20,000 and £23,000 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.
The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to advice on a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed investigations. You should not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional concerns that need to be considered and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
