I have just started taking steps with a view to transferring my current residential loan to a Buy to Let Bank of Scotland mortgage. I was told by my mortgage that I must appoint a lawyer as part of the process. I had a chat my former Mevagissey conveyancing firm who dealt with the legals when I first purchased the property. The costs illustration issued of £575 plus disbursements is surprising as its a remortgage than a sale or purchase.

The costs illustration is slightly on the high side. If you you were to look around you might shave off some of the cost by perhaps a hundred pounds.

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 Court. You will be obliged to prove that you or your lawyers have made all reasonable attempts to locate the lessor.

I inherited a 1st floor flat in Mevagissey, conveyancing formalities finalised January 2008. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Equivalent flats in Mevagissey with an extended lease are worth £179,000. The ground rent is £65 invoiced annually. The lease runs out on 21st October 2077

With only 57 years left to run we estimate the premium for your lease extension to range between £26,600 and £30,800 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs without more comprehensive due diligence. Do not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be other concerns that need to be considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action placing reliance on this information before getting professional advice.
