Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Mayfair

Recently been in touch with my conveyancing lawyer in Mayfair who conducted the legals two years ago requesting a conveyancing estimate based on the same type of house move (a leasehold residence and a freehold property) of almost identical values with a loan from National Westminster Bank. It looks as though am now being charged twice the amount. Am I right to be tempted to shop around for a cheaper online conveyancer?

The estimate does seem a tad steep. If you you were to look around you may be able to shave off some of the cost by perhaps a hundred pounds. On the other hand, providing that you were satisfied with the conveyancing the firm provided you maycome to rue opting for an an untested solicitor.

Can you explain why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Mayfair is more expensive?

In short, leasehold conveyancing in Mayfair and London usually requires extra due diligence compared to freehold transactions. This includes analysing the lease terms, communicating with the landlord about the service of applicable notices, procuring current service charge and management information, obtaining the freeholder’s consents and reviewing management accounts. The obligations on both the landlord and the tenant in the lease need to be studied by the buyer’s conveyancing team and read from beginning to end – no matter how many different owners have owned the lease since it was first granted.
