Just had an offer accepted on a new build apartment in Duxford. Conveyancing is a frightening process at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build conveyancing.

Am I right to be suspicious that estate agents that I am dealing with are recommending a factory type conveyancing firm rather than a High Street Duxford conveyancing firm?

As with lots of service providers, often suggestions from relatives can be very helpful. But there are lots of people with a vested interest in a conveyancing deal; estate agents, mortgage brokers and banks might all suggest lawyers to choose. Sometimes the lawyers might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but sometimes there may be a commercial relationship behind the endorsement. You are free to appoint your own conveyancer. However, bear in mind that most mortgage providers operate an approved list of law firms you are obliged to use for the lender aspect of your house move.

I have just started marketing my garden flat in Duxford. Conveyancing is yet to be initiated, however I have just had a yearly maintenance charge invoice – what should I do?

The sensible thing to do is clear the service charge as usual as all rents and service payments will be allotted on completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.

I bought a garden flat in Duxford, conveyancing formalities finalised January 2008. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Corresponding properties in Duxford with a long lease are worth £195,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 levied per year. The lease ends on 21st October 2083

With just 63 years left to run we estimate the price of your lease extension to be between £16,200 and £18,600 as well as 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 supply a more accurate figure without more comprehensive 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 considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
