There are plenty of conveyancing solicitors in Avonmouth but how do I know who I should use?

We would encourage you not to go for the cheapest Avonmouth conveyancing fees. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in ahead of the deal.

I'm the only beneficiary of my late grandmother’s estate and I have everything in my name alone, including the house in Avonmouth. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in September. I now wish to sell up. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', which means that my property ownership could be considered the same way as though I had purchased the property in September. Do I have to wait 6 months to sell?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook mandates conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you could be impacted by that. many banks would take a practical view as this provision is principally there to pick up on subsales or the wholesaling and assigning of properties.

We were going to get a AIP from Principality this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Principality recommend any Avonmouth solicitors on the Principality conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?

You will need to appoint Avonmouth solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Principality conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Principality through the process.

We expect to complete the disposal of our £300,000 garden flat in Avonmouth in just under a week. The managing agents has quoted £312 for Landlord’s certificate, insurance certificate and previous years statements of service charge. Is the landlord entitled to charge such fees for a leasehold conveyance in Avonmouth?

Avonmouth conveyancing on leasehold maisonettes more often than not involves the buyer’s solicitor submitting questions for the landlord to answer. Although the landlord is under no legal obligation to address such questions the majority will be willing to do so. They may charge a reasonable administration fee for responding to enquiries or supplying documentation. There is no set fee. The average fee for the paperwork that you are referring to is over three hundred pounds, in some transactions it is in excess of £800. The management information fee required by the landlord must be sent together with a summary of entitlements and obligations in respect of administration fees, otherwise the charge is technically not due. In reality you have no choice but to pay whatever is demanded if you want to exchange contracts with the buyer.

I purchased a split level flat in Avonmouth, conveyancing having been completed 3 years ago. How much will my lease extension cost? Equivalent flats in Avonmouth with a long lease are worth £190,000. The ground rent is £45 charged once a year. The lease ceases on 21st October 2082

With 62 years remaining on your lease we estimate the premium for your lease extension to range between £17,100 and £19,800 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to supply the actual costs without more detailed due diligence. Do not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be other concerns that need to be considered and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations.
