I've recently bought a leasehold house in Flitwick. Am I liable to pay 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 owner and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. However, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. It is an essential part 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 leasehold flat in Flitwick, conveyancing having been completed January 2010. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Corresponding properties in Flitwick with a long lease are worth £186,000. The ground rent is £55 invoiced annually. The lease expires on 21st October 2075

You have 52 years remaining on your lease we estimate the price of your lease extension to range between £29,500 and £34,000 plus legals.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed due diligence. Do not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt other concerns that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action placing reliance on this information before getting professional advice.

My hope is to acquire a garden apartment in Flitwick. Conveyancing solicitor has been awaiting, from the owner, building insurance paperwork. Earlier today I was advised that the owner must forward the insurance schedule for the flat above also. Why does my lawyer need to see the insurance for the other flat? Is it strictly required? We have been stalled for the last 4 weeks…

It is not impossible in leasehold conveyancing in Flitwick to find Conveyancing in Flitwick in a minority of cases reveals that the lease requires the leasehold owners to insure their individual flats rather than the landlord insuring the entire property - which is definitely better. Do check with your conveyancer but it would appear that your property lawyer is looking to verify that the whole building is insured. Insuring your flat is no help when it comes to rebuilding after a fire if the 1st floor cannot be reinstated as a result of lack of insurance.
