I am close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our home in Buckinghamshire and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was constructed on contaminated land. A high street Buckinghamshire conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the buyers instructed a factory type conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Buckinghamshire. We have lived in Buckinghamshire for many years we know of no issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to obtain clarification that the buyers are looking for.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing solicitor already. What do they say? You should enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same ailment)

I have been on the look out for a flat up to £195,000 and identified one close by in Buckinghamshire I like with amenity areas and railway links in the vicinity, however it only has 51 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Buckinghamshire suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a lease with such few years left?

If you need a mortgage that many years will be an issue. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.

In searching the internet for the term conveyancing in Buckinghamshire it brings up many conveyancerslocally. How do I determine which is the right conveyancing solicitor for the sale of my house?

The preferential method of seeking the right conveyancer is through a personal recommendation, so enquire of friends and family who have acquired a property in Buckinghamshire or the respected estate agent or mortgage broker. Fees for conveyancing in Buckinghamshire differ, so it's sensible to secure a minimum of four fee calculations from varying types of companies.

Harry (my fiance) and I may need to let out our Buckinghamshire garden flat temporarily due to taking a sabbatical. We used a Buckinghamshire conveyancing firm in 2003 but they have since shut and we did not think at the time seek any advice as to whether the lease prohibits the subletting of the flat. How do we find out?

Even though your last Buckinghamshire conveyancing lawyer is no longer available you can check your lease to check if it allows you to sublet the premises. The accepted inference is that if the deeds are non-specific, subletting is allowed. Quite often there is a prerequisite that you need to obtain permission via your landlord or some other party before subletting. The net result is that you cannot sublet in the absence of first obtaining permission. The consent must not not be unreasonably refused ore delayed. If the lease prohibits you from letting out the property you should ask your landlord if they are willing to waive this restriction.

I invested in buying a leasehold flat in Buckinghamshire, conveyancing formalities finalised 10 years ago. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Equivalent properties in Buckinghamshire with over 90 years remaining are worth £206,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 charged once a year. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2090

With just 66 years remaining on your lease we estimate the price of your lease extension to be between £12,400 and £14,200 as well as legals.

The figure above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to advice on the actual costs without more detailed investigations. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other issues that need to be considered and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not take any other action placing reliance on this information before getting professional advice.

The solicitors undertaking our conveyancing in Buckinghamshire has sent papers to review that state the property is unregistered with epitome documents. Why is the property not yet recorded at HMLR?

Most property in Buckinghamshire is registered. An 'epitome' is basically a dossier of photocopies of documents affecting an unregistered title. Many Buckinghamshire conveyancing practitioners should be able to handle such matters but if any uncertainty exists the conventional proposition these days is for the seller to deal with the registration formalities first and subsequently deal with the transfer to the buyer - this undoubtedly cause a significant delay.
