I’m about to sell my garden flat in Farnham Common. Conveyancing has not commenced, however I have recently had a half-yearly maintenance charge demand – what should I do?

Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should discharge the invoice as you normally would as all ground rent and maintenance charges should be apportioned on completion, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice 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 own a basement flat in Farnham Common, conveyancing having been completed in 2010. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Similar flats in Farnham Common with over 90 years remaining are worth £180,000. The ground rent is £65 levied per year. The lease finishes on 21st October 2080

You have 58 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to range between £22,800 and £26,400 as well as legals.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs in the absence of detailed due diligence. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional concerns that need to be considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action placing reliance on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.

My husband and I are acquiring a garden flat in Farnham Common. At the time of instructing our property lawyer, we were told they were on all mainstream bank panels. The financial adviser called just now to say that they don't appear to be on the Lloyds approved list. If it turns out to be true, what should we do? Should we simply choose a different conveyancer that is on their approved list or do we pay for dual representation, with Lloyds appointing their own approved property lawyer.

When purchasing a property with the benefit of a mortgage it is standard for the purchaser’s lawyers to also act for the purchaser's lender. In order to act for a bank or building society a solicitor has to be on that lender's list of approved lawyers. An application has to be made by the solicitor to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict conditions which the property lawyer has to satisfy. Some building societies now insist their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Accreditation Scheme. Your solicitor should call Lloyds to discover if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own solicitors to act. You are not legally obliged to appoint a law firm on Lloyds's conveyancing panel as you are at liberty to use your preferred Farnham Common lawyers, in which case your legal fees may increase, and it may delay matters as you have another set of people involved.
