There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Conveyancing lawyers for you will transfer the completion advance to the owner’s lawyers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you should be invited to collect the keys from the Estate Agents and move into your new home.

I have recently realised that I have 68 years remaining on my flat in Liskeard. I need to get lease extension but my landlord is absent. What are my options?

If you qualify, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will enable the lease to be granted an extra 90 years by the magistrate. You will be obliged to prove that you or your lawyers have used your best endeavours to track down the landlord. On the whole an enquiry agent would be helpful to try and locate and prepare a report which can be used as evidence that the freeholder can not be located. It is advisable to get professional help from a property lawyer both on investigating the landlord’s disappearance and the application to the County Court covering Liskeard.

I inherited a studio flat in Liskeard, conveyancing was carried out November 2001. Can you give me give me an indication of the likely cost of a lease extension? Comparable flats in Liskeard with an extended lease are worth £211,000. The ground rent is £45 invoiced every year. The lease expires on 21st October 2092

With 68 years left to run the likely cost is going to range between £9,500 and £11,000 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs in the absence of detailed investigations. You should not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt additional concerns that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward based on this information before getting professional advice.
