Why is leasehold purchase conveyancing in Cowes is more expensive?

In short, leasehold conveyancing in Cowes and Isle Of Wight usually necessitates more work compared to freehold transactions. This includes reviewing the lease, communicating with the landlord concerning the service of appropriate notices, securing current service charge and management information, procuring the landlord’s consents and reviewing management accounts. The obligations on both the landlord and the tenant in the lease need to be studied by the buyer’s conveyancing team and read from beginning to end – no matter how many different owners have owned the lease since it was first entered into.

My wife and I have recently appointed a conveyancing solicitor in Cowes. I I would like to check if they are on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel. Can you assist?

The first thing you should do is e-mail your solicitor and ask them if they are on the lender panel. Alternatively you can get in touch with Bank of Ireland who may be able to help.

We're FTB’s - had an offer accepted, but the selling agent told us that the seller will only move forward if we use their chosen lawyers as they need a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a local solicitor used to conveyancing in Cowes

It is unlikely the owners are driving this. Should the vendor require ‘a quick sale', turning down a motivated buyer is not the way to achieve this. Try to communicate with the owners directly and make sure they understand (a)you are genuine purchasers (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you do not need to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you will continue to instruct your preferred Cowes conveyancing firm - not the ones that will provide their negotiator at the agency a referral fee or meet his conveyancing targets set by senior management.

My wife and I purchased a leasehold house in Cowes. Conveyancing and Santander mortgage organised. A letter has just been received from someone claiming to own the reversionary interest in the property. Attached was a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1992. The conveyancing solicitor in Cowes who acted for me is not around. Any advice?

First make enquiries of the Land Registry to make sure that this person is indeed the registered owner of the freehold reversion. You do not need to instruct a Cowes conveyancing firm to do this as it can be done on-line for £3. Rest assured that in any event, even if this is the legitimate landlord, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.

I acquired a 2 bed flat in Cowes, conveyancing formalities finalised June 1995. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Comparable flats in Cowes with a long lease are worth £185,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £65 levied per year. The lease ends on 21st October 2081

With 60 years left to run we estimate the premium for your lease extension to be between £20,000 and £23,000 plus 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 advice on the actual costs without more detailed due diligence. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt additional issues that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.

I am hoping to purchase a repossessed house in Cowes and the bank selling require completion inside a week. Can a solicitor meet that timeframe? Would it be better to instruct a local Cowes firm or an online conveyancer that professes to complete quickly?

Attend your Cowes shopping parade. Go in to a couple of companies and request to talk to a conveyancing solicitor for an estimate. Set out your needs and get a commitment on deadlines. Choose the firm that appears most efficient. Be sure to use a lawyer on the panel of property lawyers who can act for your bank.
