Our conveyancer has advised that he intends to complete and exchange simultaneously on the disposal of our £300,000 apartment in Frenchay next Monday. The managing agents has quoted £300 for Certificate of Compliance, building insurance schedule and 3 years service charge statements. Is it legal for a freeholder to charge such fees for a flat conveyance in Frenchay?

Frenchay conveyancing on leasehold apartments more often than not necessitates the buyer’s solicitor submitting enquiries for the landlord to address. Although the landlord is not legally bound to respond to such questions most will be willing to do so. They may invoice a reasonable administration fee for responding to questions or supplying documentation. There is no set fee. The average costs for the paperwork that you are referring to is over three hundred pounds, in some situations it is in excess of £800. The administration charge required by the landlord must be accompanied by a summary of rights and obligations in respect of administration fees, otherwise the charge is technically not due. Reality however dictates that one has little option but to pay whatever is requested of you if you want to exchange contracts with the buyer.
