I was recommended to a conveyancer who has sent a quote for £995 for no sale no fee conveyancing in Heston. I’m selling a Victorian detached home for £225,000. This seems expensive. Is it above what I should be paying for conveyancing in Heston?
The costs illustration is fractionally on the high side. If you shop around you may be able to get the conveyancing a bit cheaper by say a hundred pounds. That being said, you couldlive to rue choosing an an untested conveyancer. Don't forget to ensure that the conveyancer can represent your mortgage company.

I have been told that property searches are the main reason for stalling in Heston house deals. Is this right?

Searches are unlikely to feature in any slowing down conveyancing in Heston.
Due to the encouragement of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Heston in advance of appointing conveyancers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. Our surveyor advised that some lenders may not grant a loan on a flying freehold house.

I have recently realised that I have Fifty years remaining on my flat in Heston. I am keen to extend my lease but my freeholder is missing. What options are available to me?
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 mean that your lease can be extended by the Court. You will be obliged to demonstrate that you have made all reasonable attempts to locate the landlord. On the whole a specialist should be useful to try and locate and to produce an expert document to be accepted by the court as evidence that the freeholder is indeed missing. It is wise to seek advice from a conveyancer both on investigating the landlord’s disappearance and the application to the County Court overseeing Heston.
I have given up seeking a lease extension in Heston. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal adjudicate on premiums?
Most definitely. We can put you in touch with a Heston conveyancing firm who can help.
An example of a Lease Extension case for a Heston flat is Ground Floor Flat 91 Bath Road in May 2009. in a case where the freeholder could not be traced, the Brentford County Court ordered that the Lease be surrendered in return for the grant of a new lease of the Premises at a premium determined by the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal. The tribunal concluded that the price payable by the Applicant for the new lease of the premises be £15,900 This case affected 1 flat. The unexpired term was 60.45 years.
Developers have suggested I use a conveyancer and I've sought an estimate from them. It's nearly two hundred pounds less expensive than my local Heston property lawyer. Should I use them?
Builders often have panels of conveyancing practitioners who expedite matters and who know the developer’s contract and conveyancing practitioner. As many developers offer an incentive to choose a preferred conveyancer for this reason, any increased cost can be avoided and a builder won't suggest a conveyancing warehouse and run the risk of having the conveyancing stall when they want exchange in 28 days. A counter-argument for not opting for the recommended conveyancer is that they may prove unwilling to 'push' your interests for fear of alienating the housebuilder. If you worry that this may be the situation you should stick with your local Heston lawyer.
