As far as conveyancing in Kenley is concerned, registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in England and Wales. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can adjust according to who lodges the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry have to notify any third parties. Currently roughly three quarters of such applications are completed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to protracted delays.

I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and found one near me in Kenley I like with open areas and railway links in the vicinity, however it's only got 51 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Kenley suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.

Completion is due on the disposal of our £325,000 flat in Kenley on Tuesday in a week. The management company has quoted £324 for Landlord’s certificate, building insurance schedule and previous years service charge statements. Is the landlord entitled to charge exorbitant fees for a leasehold conveyance in Kenley?

Kenley conveyancing on leasehold apartments often involves the buyer’s lawyer submitting questions for the landlord to address. Although the landlord is not legally bound to address these enquiries the majority will be willing to assist. They are entitled to levy a reasonable administration fee for responding to questions or supplying documentation. There is no set fee. The average fee for the information that you are referring to is over three hundred pounds, in some transactions it exceeds £800. The administration charge demanded by the landlord must be accompanied by a synopsis of rights and obligations in respect of administration fees, without which the charge is technically not due. In reality one has little choice but to pay whatever is demanded if you want to complete the sale of your home.

I have had difficulty in negotiating a lease extension in Kenley. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal adjudicate on premiums?

if there is a missing freeholder or where there is dispute about what the lease extension should cost, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 it is possible to make an application to the First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) to arrive at the price.

An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement matter before the tribunal for a Kenley property is The Woodlands 95 Purley Park Road in April 2009. The Tribunals own valuation produced the figure of £37,912. This case was in relation to 6 flats. The remaining number of years on the lease was 78.32 years.
