The fact that your lawyer is on the Barclays conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not. However, no solicitor should guarantee a timeframe for your conveyancing, due to third parties outside of your control such as delays caused by lenders,conveyancing search providers or by the other side’s solicitors. The time taken is often determined by the number of parties in a chain.

A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a simple, chain free conveyancing. Mountsorrel is where the house is located. Is there any advice you can impart?

Flying freeholds in Mountsorrel are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Mountsorrel you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Mountsorrel may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.

What are your top tips when it comes to appointing a Mountsorrel conveyancing firm to deal with our lease extension?

If you are instructing a property lawyer for lease extension works (regardless if they are a Mountsorrel conveyancing practice) it is most important that they be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of conveyancing. We suggest that you make enquires with several firms including non Mountsorrel conveyancing practices prior to instructing a firm. Where the conveyancing practice is ALEP accredited then so much the better. The following questions might be helpful:

    How experienced is the practice with lease extension legislation?

I inherited a basement flat in Mountsorrel, conveyancing having been completed 5 years ago. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Equivalent flats in Mountsorrel with over 90 years remaining are worth £265,000. The ground rent is £50 invoiced annually. The lease ceases on 21st October 2100

With just 76 years unexpired the likely cost is going to range between £8,600 and £9,800 plus legals.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs without more comprehensive due diligence. You should not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt other concerns that need to be considered and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
