Have purchased a a semi-detached house in Frogmore , how long should it take for the Land Registry to record the transfer to my name? My Frogmore conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to be sure that my name is registered.
There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Frogmore registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timeframes can adjust subject to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry have to notify any interested parties. Currently roughly 80% of such applications are completed within two weeks but occasionally there can be extensive hold-ups. Historically registration is effected once the new owner has moved in to the property therefore an expedited registration is not usually top priority but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer can communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
Taking into account that I will soon spend over three hundred thousand on a house in Frogmore I would like to have a conversation with the lawyer regarding thehouse move prior to giving the go ahead to the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?
We could not agree more - it is our preference to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you liaising with the solicitor due to be doing your property ownership legalities in Frogmore.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - each client is unique individual, not a matter reference. The practices that we put you in touch with believe that the figure you are provided with for your conveyancing in Frogmore should be the figure that you end up paying.
My husband and I are a couple of weeks into a leasehold purchase having been referred to conveyancers by the local agent to execute conveyancing in Frogmore. I am am very dissatisfied with the level of service. Could you help me find new solicitors?
They would need to be very bad to suggest replacing them. Has the mortgage been issued? In the event that it has you will need to make them aware of the new contact details and get the offer are re-sent. Your solicitor ideally should be on the mortgage company panel to avoid escalating costs and complications. That should be your starting point.

I am a negotiator for a busy estate agency in Frogmore where we have experienced a number of leasehold sales put at risk as a result of leases having less than 80 years remaining. I have been given inconsistent advice from local Frogmore conveyancing solicitors. Please can you confirm whether the owner of a flat can initiate the lease extension process for the purchaser on completion of the sale?
Provided that the seller has been the owner for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to commence the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. This means that the proposed purchaser need not have to wait 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment has to be done prior to, or at the same time as completion of the sale.
Alternatively, it may be possible to extend the lease informally by agreement with the landlord either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the purchaser.
I bought a 1st floor flat in Frogmore, conveyancing having been completed August 2009. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Comparable properties in Frogmore with an extended lease are worth £201,000. The ground rent is £45 invoiced annually. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2086
You have 65 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to be between £13,300 and £15,400 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.
The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to provide a more accurate figure in the absence of comprehensive investigations. Do not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt additional issues that need to be taken into account and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
