Having sold my house in Dronfield last April but the buyer keeps whats apping every few hours to say their conveyancer needs to hear from mysolicitor. What should my lawyer have done now that I have sold?

After completion of your disposal your conveyancer should forward the transfer documentation and all additional paperwork to the buyer’s solicitors. Depending on the transaction, your lawyer must also confirm that the mortgage has been redeemed to the purchasers conveyancers. There is unlikely to be post completion procedures just for conveyancing in Dronfield.

The Dronfield conveyancing solicitors that I recently instructed on my purchase in Dronfield have without warning closed. I only went with them because I had to have a solicitor on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel and my preferred Dronfield lawyer was not. I gave my credit card details for them to take £195 for searches. What do I do now?

If you have an estate agent involved then let them know immediately so that they can let the sellers know that there may be a slight delay due to reasons beyond your control. Hopefully they will be sympathetic and urge their lawyer to send a new set of papers to your new solicitors. You should appoint new lawyers that are on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel and notify the lender. If you have paid over any money, it will hopefully be held by the SRA as money in an intervened firm's bank accounts is transferred to the SRA. Then, the SRA or the intervention agent looks at the intervened firm's accounts to work out who the money belongs to. To claim your money you will need to contact the SRA. If the SRA cannot return money you are owed from the firm's bank accounts, or if they can only return part of the money, you can apply to the Compensation Fund for a grant. Your new lawyers should be in a position to help.

My wife and I have a renovated Victorian property in Dronfield. Conveyancing practitioner represented me and Leeds Building Society. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw a couple of entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold with the matching address. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?

You need to assess the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Dronfield and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with mortgage companies. You can also check the position with your conveyancing lawyer who completed the work.

How does the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 impact my business property in Dronfield and how can you help?

The particular law that you refer to affords security of tenure to commercial tenants, granting the a statutory right to make a request to court for a continuation of occupancy when the lease reaches an end. There are certain specified grounds that a landlord can refrain from granting a lease renewal and the rules are involved. Fees are different for commercial conveyancing. Dronfield is one of our many areas of the UK in which our lawyers are located

Last February I purchased a leasehold flat in Dronfield. Do I have any liability for service charges relating to a period prior to completion of my purchase?

In a situation where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous lessee and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. Strange as it may seem, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. A critical element of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to ensure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.

If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).

I own a 2 bed flat in Dronfield, conveyancing was carried out 5 years ago. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Equivalent properties in Dronfield with an extended lease are worth £265,000. The ground rent is £50 yearly. The lease runs out on 21st October 2098

With 76 years left to run the likely cost is going to range between £8,600 and £9,800 plus costs.

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 in the absence of detailed due diligence. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other issues that need to be taken into account and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action placing reliance on this information without first getting professional advice.
