Is the landlord entitled to charge exorbitant fees for a leasehold conveyance in Beverley?

Beverley conveyancing on leasehold apartments usually requires the buyer’s conveyancer submitting questions for the landlord to answer. Although the landlord is not legally bound to answer such questions most will be content to do so. They are at liberty to levy a reasonable administration fee for answering enquiries or supplying documentation. There is no set fee. The average costs for the information that you are referring to is £350, in some transactions it is in excess of £800. The administration charge demanded by the landlord must be accompanied by a summary of entitlements and obligations in relation to administration fees, without which the invoice is not strictly payable. Reality however dictates that one has little option but to pay whatever is demanded should you wish to complete the sale of your home.

This is due to the fact that on completion the purchase price will be transferred electronically between the banks of the buyer and seller's lawyer and currently this can only happen on a business day. It is not possible to complete on a weekend either.
