Although the landlord is not legally bound to address these enquiries the majority will be willing to assist. They are entitled to charge a reasonable charge 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 situations it is above £800. The management information fee demanded by the landlord must be accompanied by a synopsis of rights and obligations in respect of administration fees, without which the invoice is not strictly payable.

Corbridge Conveyancing for Leasehold Flats - Examples of Queries before Purchasing

    Can you inform me if there are any major works in the near future that will add a premium to the service charges? What is the length of the lease? Where a Corbridge lease has no more than 80 years it will impact the value of the apartment. Check with your lender that they are content with remaining years on the lease. A short lease means that you will most likely have to extend the lease at some point and you need to have some idea of what this would cost. Remember, in most cases you would need to own the residence for a couple of years before you are eligible to carry out a lease extension.
