Just contacted my conveyancing lawyer in Lee On The Solent who acted for me two years ago requesting a conveyancing quote based on the same type of house sale & purchase (a leasehold residence and a freehold premises) of similar values with a home loan from Barclays Direct. I am now being charged double. Should I look for a cheaper online conveyancer?

On the day of completion you will not be required to attend the conveyancers office in Lee On The Solent.

Planning on purchasing a house in Lee On The Solent. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Barclays conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Lee On The Solent property lawyer is on the Barclays conveyancing panel.

I purchased a semi-detached Edwardian house in Lee On The Solent. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Santander. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw two entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold with the matching address. Is it worth asking Santander to clarify?

You should read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Lee On The Solent and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also question the position with your conveyancing lawyer who conducted the purchase.

The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build flat in Lee On The Solent. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build legal work.

Set out below is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build questions that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Lee On The Solent

    If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents.

I have just appointed agents to market my 2 bed flat in Lee On The Solent. Conveyancing is yet to be initiated, but I have recently had a quarterly service charge invoice – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?

The sensible thing to do is clear the service charge as usual given that all ground rent and maintenance payments should be apportioned as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.

I inherited a garden flat in Lee On The Solent, conveyancing formalities finalised in 2011. How much will my lease extension cost? Corresponding flats in Lee On The Solent with an extended lease are worth £211,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 invoiced annually. The lease expires on 21st October 2092

You have 68 years left to run we estimate the price of your lease extension to span between £9,500 and £11,000 as well as professional fees.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to advice on the actual costs in the absence of comprehensive due diligence. Do not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt other issues that need to be considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
