3 months have elapsed since my purchase conveyancing in Murton completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?

What are your top tips when it comes to appointing a Murton conveyancing practice to carry out our lease extension conveyancing?

When appointing a property lawyer for your lease extension (regardless if they are a Murton conveyancing practice) it is essential that he or she should be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of conveyancing. We recommend that you talk with two or three firms including non Murton conveyancing practices before you instructing a firm. Where the conveyancing practice is ALEP accredited then so much the better. The following questions could be of use:

    How experienced is the practice with lease extension legislation? How many lease extensions have they completed in Murton in the last twenty four months?

I inherited a 1st floor flat in Murton, conveyancing was carried out 10 years ago. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Comparable flats in Murton with a long lease are worth £265,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 charged once a year. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2098

With 75 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £8,600 and £9,800 as well as costs.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to supply a more accurate figure without more detailed due diligence. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional concerns that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward placing reliance on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.

Is it true that a Murton conveyancing practice got sued by clients for not carrying out the appropriate conveyancing investigations?

Our attention has not be brought to such a Murton conveyancing matter but it has been reported that, a couple buying a home elsewhere in England successfully sued their solicitor due to development permission to build a wind farm not being picked up in conveyancing searches.

Where you are contemplating buying a home in Murton It is critical that your property lawyer carry out all Murton conveyancing searches necessary to ensure you have accurate and up to date information ahead of acquiring a property.
