Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Hornsea. Before I get started I require certainty as to the number of years remaining on the lease.

If the lease is registered - and most are in Hornsea - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

I invested in buying a 1st floor flat in Hornsea, conveyancing formalities finalised in 2004. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension?

You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional issues that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
