I only have Seventy years remaining on my lease in Hengoed. I now wish to extend my lease but my freeholder is can not be found. What should I do?

On the basis that you qualify, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can submit an application to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will enable the lease to be extended by the magistrate. You will be obliged to demonstrate that you or your lawyers have done all that could be expected to find the lessor. In some cases an enquiry agent should be helpful to carry out a search and to produce a report which can be accepted by the court as evidence that the landlord is indeed missing. It is wise to seek advice from a solicitor in relation to proving the landlord’s absence and the vesting order request to the County Court overseeing Hengoed.

I inherited a ground floor flat in Hengoed, conveyancing was carried out October 1998. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Comparable properties in Hengoed with a long lease are worth £201,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 levied per year. The lease ends on 21st October 2087

With 65 years left to run we estimate the premium for your lease extension to be between £13,300 and £15,400 as well as costs.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs without more comprehensive investigations. Do not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt other issues that need to be taken into account and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.

My 20yr old son is embarking on her first house purchase, the home loan was agreed last week in principle. One the seller agreed the offer on the flat we called the mortgage company to progress the mortgage application. I was disappointed to learn that mortgage companies do not accept all conveyancing practitioner, they must be on their panel, is this right?

Lenders ordinarily imposes restrictions either the type or the number of conveyancing solicitors on their approved list of lawyers. Typical examples of such restriction(s) being that a firm must have two or more partners. In addition to restricting the type of firm, some have decided to limit the number of firms they use to represent them. You should note that lenders have no responsibility for the quality of advice provided by any Hengoed conveyancer on their panel. Mortgage fraud was a key driver in the rationalisation of conveyancing panels a few years ago and whilst there are differing views about the extent of solicitor involvement in some of that fraud. Statistics from the Land Registry reveal that thousands of law firms only carry out one or two conveyances a year. Those supporting conveyancing panel cuts ask why law firms should have the right to be on a Lender panel when clearly, conveyancing is not their speciality. To put it another way; would you want a conveyancing solicitor to represent you if you were charged with a crime? Presumably not.
