I recently had an offer agreed on an apartment in Langford. My mortgage broker pressured me to appoint their lawyer. I paid an upfront payment of £150. A couple of days later, the property lawyer contacted me sheepishly admitting that they were not on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?

I've recently bought a leasehold flat in Langford. Am I liable to pay service charges relating to a period prior to completion of my purchase?

Where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous owner and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. Strange as it may seem, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. A critical element of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to ensure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.

If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).

I inherited a split level flat in Langford, conveyancing formalities finalised 5 years ago. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Corresponding properties in Langford with an extended lease are worth £185,000. The ground rent is £65 invoiced annually. The lease finishes on 21st October 2082

With 61 years left to run the likely cost is going to be between £19,000 and £22,000 plus costs.

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 without more detailed investigations. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other issues that need to be taken into account and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
