Having spent months of correspondence we are unable to agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Dartford. Does the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal have jurisdiction to calculate the appropriate figures?

if there is a absentee landlord or if there is dispute about what the lease extension should cost, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to arrive at the price.

An example of a Lease Extension matter before the tribunal for a Dartford property is Various @ Colombus Square in January 2012. the Tribunal calculated the premiums to be paid for new leases for each of the flats in Mariners Walk to be £3822 and the premium to be paid for the new lease of 2 Knights Court to be £4439. This case affected 13 flats. The unexpired residue of the current lease was 76 years.

When it comes to leasehold conveyancing in Dartford what are the most frequent lease problems?

Leasehold conveyancing in Dartford is not unique. Most leases are individual and drafting errors can sometimes mean that certain sections are not included. The following missing provisions could result in a defective lease:

    A provision to repair to or maintain elements of the property A provision for the recovery of money spent for the benefit of another party.

You could encounter a problem when selling your property if you have a defective lease primarily because it impacts on the ability to obtain a mortgage on the property. Birmingham Midshires, Coventry Building Society, and Godiva Mortgages Ltd all have very detailed requirements when it comes to what is expected in a lease. Where a lender has been advised by their lawyers that the lease is defective they may refuse to provide security, forcing the buyer to withdraw.

Been reading online that Dartford solicitors are more costly than Dartford conveyancers in Dartford when it comes to buying a property. Am I better off using a conveyancer or a solicitor where I am buying a house in Dartford.

When it comes to conveyancing in Dartford the costs are unlikely to vary dramatically depending on whether the legal expert is a licenced conveyancer or solicitor.
