Do I need to be concerned by estate agents that I am dealing with are recommending a web based conveyancing firm rather than a High Street Fenstanton conveyancing firm?

As with many professional services, often referrals from relatives can be extremely useful or valuable. Nevertheless there are many players in a conveyancing transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and banks may suggest solicitors to use. On occasion these solicitors might be known to one of the organisations as one of the best in their field, but sometimes there exists a commercial relationship behind the endorsement. You are free to choose your preferred lawyer. However, bear in mind that the majority of banks specify a panel list of lawyers you have to use for the mortgage related work in your conveyancing.

If other friends have used your friend and they were impressed that must trump using an unfamiliar Fenstanton conveyancing solicitor just because they are based in the area.

Our conveyancer has advised that he intends to complete and exchange simultaneously on the disposal of our £375,000 apartment in Fenstanton on Monday in a week. The freeholder has quoted £408 for Certificate of Compliance, insurance certificate and previous years service charge statements. Is the landlord entitled to charge such fees for a leasehold conveyance in Fenstanton?

Fenstanton conveyancing on leasehold apartments normally necessitates the buyer’s conveyancer sending enquiries for the landlord to answer. Although the landlord is not legally bound to respond to such questions most will be willing to do so. They may charge a reasonable charge for responding to questions or supplying documentation. There is no upper cap for such fees. The average fee for the information that you are referring to is over three hundred pounds, in some cases it is in excess of £800. The administration charge required by the landlord must be sent together with a summary of entitlements and obligations in respect of administration charges, without which the invoice is not strictly payable. Reality however dictates that you have little option but to pay whatever is requested of you should you wish to complete the sale of your home.

I invested in buying a garden flat in Fenstanton, conveyancing having been completed September 2011. Can you let me have an estimate of the premium that my landlord can legally expect in return for granting a renewal of my lease? Similar properties in Fenstanton with a long lease are worth £179,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £65 invoiced annually. The lease ceases on 21st October 2081

With just 57 years left to run the likely cost is going to be between £26,600 and £30,800 as well as costs.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more comprehensive due diligence. You should not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other concerns that need to be considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward placing reliance on this information before getting professional advice.
