On the basis that you meet the appropriate requirements, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the County Court for for permission to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will mean that your lease can be lengthened by the Court. You will be obliged to demonstrate that you have used your best endeavours to find the landlord. For most situations an enquiry agent would be useful to conduct investigations and to produce an expert document to be used as evidence that the landlord can not be located.

I acquired a 1st floor flat in Grappenhall, conveyancing having been completed September 2010. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Comparable properties in Grappenhall with over 90 years remaining are worth £175,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £65 invoiced annually. The lease ends on 21st October 2080

With just 58 years remaining on your lease the likely cost is going to be between £23,800 and £27,400 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The figure above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to supply a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed investigations. You should not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional concerns that need to be considered 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 seeking the advice of a professional.

I have appointed a Grappenhall conveyancing solicitor for our house purchase (FTB’s) and have noticed in the terms and conditions that they are not regulated by the FCA. Need I be concerned or is that the norm with lawyer?

We can't see why they should be. Most conveyancer don't lend money. They will be governed by the Solicitors Regulation Authority, who dictate specific obligations in place on amounts deposited on client account.
