My wife and I are only a couple days away from an exchange on a house in Kingsnorth and my parents have sent the 10% deposit to my conveyancer. I am now informed that as the deposit has not arrived from me my property lawyer needs to disclose this to my mortgage company. Apparently, in also acting for the bank he must inform them that the balance of the purchase price is coming from anyone other than me. I advised the lender concerning my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really appropriate for him to raise this?

Your conveyancer is legally required to clarify with lender to ensure that they are aware that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. The solicitor can only disclose this to your lender if you permit them to, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.

After much negotiation I have agreed a price on an apartment in Kingsnorth. My financial adviser pressured me to appoint their conveyancing practitioner. I paid an upfront payment of £225. Not long after, the solicitor called me to say that they were not on the Principality conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?

You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Principality panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

If you know people who used your friend and in the main were content that must outweigh using an unfamiliar Kingsnorth conveyancing solicitor just because they are Kingsnorth based.

I have recently realised that I have 62 years unexpired on my lease in Kingsnorth. I now want to extend my lease but my landlord is missing. What are my options?

On the basis that you meet the appropriate requirements, 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 lengthened by the Court. You will be obliged to demonstrate that you or your lawyers have made all reasonable attempts to locate the landlord. For most situations a specialist may be useful to try and locate and prepare an expert document to 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 disappearance and the vesting order request to the County Court covering Kingsnorth.

I invested in buying a 1 bedroom flat in Kingsnorth, conveyancing formalities finalised in 2003. How much will my lease extension cost? Similar flats in Kingsnorth with a long lease are worth £185,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £65 per annum. The lease ceases on 21st October 2082

With only 60 years left to run we estimate the price of your lease extension to be between £20,000 and £23,000 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to provide a more accurate figure in the absence of comprehensive investigations. Do not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt additional concerns that need to be considered and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
