Recently been in touch with my conveyancing lawyer in Gwernaffield who acted for me 18 months ago requesting a conveyancing estimate based on the same type of house move (a leasehold residence and a freehold property) of similar values with a mortgage from TSB. It looks as though am now being quoted twice the amount. Am I right to be tempted to shop around for a cheaper internet property lawyer?
The estimate fees appear a tad high. If you are willing to spend time scrutinising quotes you could decrease the fees marginally by say £125. That being said, if you were content with the legal work the firm offered you mightcome to rue choosing an an untested conveyancer. If is important to be sure that the solicitor can act for TSB.

I am employed by a long established estate agent office in Gwernaffield where we see a number of flat sales jeopardised as a result of short leases. I have received inconsistent advice from local Gwernaffield conveyancing solicitors. Please can you shed some light as to whether the owner of a flat can instigate the lease extension formalities for the purchaser on completion of the sale?
Provided that the seller has owned the lease for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. This means that the buyer need not have to sit tight for 2 years for a lease extension. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment needs to be completed prior to, or at the same time as completion of the disposal of the property.
An alternative approach is to agree the lease extension with the freeholder 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.
