A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need.

HSBC would not normally appoint firms on their approved list of lawyers to deal with such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the HSBC list.

I have been on the look out for a flat up to £195,000 and found one near me in Hilsea I like with open areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 49 years on the lease. There is not much else in Hilsea in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a home loan that many years may be problematic. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you can ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this.

We expect to complete the sale of our £150,000 flat in Hilsea in just under a week. The landlords agents has quoted £336 for Landlord’s certificate, building insurance schedule and 3 years service charge statements. Is the landlord entitled to charge exorbitant fees for a flat conveyance in Hilsea?

Hilsea conveyancing on leasehold maisonettes more often than not necessitates the buyer’s conveyancer submitting questions for the landlord to address. Although the landlord is under no legal obligation to respond to such questions most will be willing to assist. They may levy a reasonable charge for answering enquiries or supplying documentation. There is no upper cap for such fees. The average fee for the paperwork that you are referring to is over three hundred pounds, in some situations it is above £800. The management information fee invoiced by the landlord must be accompanied by a synopsis of entitlements and obligations in relation to administration fees, otherwise the invoice is not strictly payable. Reality however dictates that you have no choice but to pay whatever is requested of you should you wish to sell the property.

Leasehold Conveyancing in Hilsea - A selection of Questions you should ask before Purchasing

    Plenty Hilsea leasehold properties will be liable to pay a service charge for the upkeep of the block invoiced by the freeholder. Should you buy the apartment you will have to pay this liability, normally quarterly accross the year. This can vary from two or three hundred pounds to thousands of pounds for blocks with lifts and large communal grounds. There will also be a rentcharge to be met annual, normally this is not a exorbitant amount, say approximately £50-£100 but you need to enquire as occasionally it can be surprisingly expensive. The best form of lease structure is a share of the freehold. In this arrangement the tenants have being in charge if their destiny and even though a managing agent is usually retained where the building is bigger than a house conversion, the managing agent acts for the leaseholders themselves. Does the lease have onerous restrictions?

I have been advised by various estate agents that it may take up to two months for Hilsea conveyancing to complete.This was 3 ago. The paperwork was only sent to my solicitor yesterday so does the time start running now?

Don't bank on counting down any 6-8 week suggested period. Answering accurately how long Hilsea conveyancing will take is an impossible task. Every property will have it’s own unique set of issues. Accordingly your conveyancer should be unwilling to accurately predict how long it will take to finalise conveyancing in Hilsea.
