My best friend’s step-father is a solicitor. I hope that I will receive preferential rates for conveyancing, but if not, what kind of costs would I typically be looking at for conveyancing in Llanbradach?

My Llanbradach lawyer has spotted a discrepancy when comparing the information in the home valuation survey and what is revealed within the conveyancing documents. My lawyer has advised that he is duty bound to check that the lender is OK with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my solicitor’s course or action right?
Your conveyancing practitioner must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for you.

As with lots of service providers, often referrals from connections can be most helpful. But there are lots of people with a keen interest in a conveyancing matter; estate agents, financial adviser and mortgage companies might all put forward lawyers to choose. Sometimes these solicitors might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but sometimes there is an underlying financial incentive behind the recommendation. You have the discretion to choose your own conveyancer. Don't forget that most lenders operate an approved list of solicitors you must use for the mortgage aspect of your home move.
I only have Fifty years unexpired on my lease in Llanbradach. I am keen to get lease extension but my freeholder is missing. What should I do?
If you meet the appropriate requirements, 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 mean that your lease can be lengthened by the magistrate. You will be obliged to demonstrate that you or your lawyers have used your best endeavours to locate the freeholder. On the whole a specialist may be helpful to carry out a search and prepare a report which can be accepted by the court as proof that the freeholder can not be located. It is wise to seek advice from a property lawyer both on devolving into the landlord’s absence and the vesting order request to the County Court overseeing Llanbradach.
I purchased a 1st floor flat in Llanbradach, conveyancing formalities finalised 3 years ago. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Comparable properties in Llanbradach with over 90 years remaining are worth £180,000. The ground rent is £65 levied per year. The lease terminates on 21st October 2080
With just 59 years remaining on your lease we estimate the premium for your lease extension to be between £20,900 and £24,200 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 supply a more accurate figure without more detailed due diligence. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other issues that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action placing reliance on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
