I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Bickley. Before I get started I require certainty as to the remaining lease term.

Assuming the lease is registered - and almost all are in Bickley - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

After years of negotiations we cannot agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Bickley. Does the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal have jurisdiction to calculate the appropriate figures?

Most definitely. We can put you in touch with a Bickley conveyancing firm who can help.

We have been told by many friends to expect 6-8 weeks for Bickley conveyancing to complete.This was a month ago. The draft contract was only received to my property lawyer yesterday so does the clock start running now?

Six to eight weeks is an extremely approximate timescale. Giving assurances as to precisely how how many weeks Bickley conveyancing will take is virtually impossible. Every Bickley conveyancing transaction has it’s specific set of concerns. As a result your lawyer should be unwilling to guarantee an exact timeframe to conclude your conveyancing in Bickley.
