Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Maida Hill. Before diving in I would like to find out the number of years remaining on the lease.

Assuming the lease is registered - and 99.9% are in Maida Hill - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

Following years of negotiations we cannot agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Maida Hill. Does the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal have jurisdiction to calculate the appropriate figures?

in cases where there is a absentee freeholder or where there is dispute about the premium for a lease extension, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 it is possible to make an application to the LVT to make a decision on the amount due.

An example of a Lease Extension decision for a Maida Hill property is Flat 1 57 Oxford Gardens in January 2014. the Tribunal decided that the premium to be paidfor a new lease is £61,650.00. This case affected 1 flat. The remaining number of years on the lease was 60 years.

We can't see why they should be. Most conveyancer don't lend money. They should be governed by the Solicitors Regulation Authority, who set specific obligations regulating funds held on client account.
