This question may be naive but I am unseasoned as a 1st time purchaser of a garden flat in Neston. Do I collect the keys to the property on the completion date from my lawyer? If so, I will use a local conveyancing solicitor in Neston?

Your solicitors will transfer the purchase money to the vendor’s lawyers, and once they have received this, you should be invited to receive the keys from the selling Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen early afternoon.
We have agreed to purchase a house in Neston. One unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender Principality be concerned?
As you are obtaining a mortgage with Principality your lawyer must comply with the conveyancing requirements contained in Part two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Principality. The CML Handbook stipulates minimum provisions for solar panel roof-space leases, and solicitors are required to report to Principality where a lease fails to satisfy these conditions. The requirements relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not isolated to Neston.

I am a negotiator for a long established estate agency in Neston where we have experienced a number of flat sales put at risk due to leases having less than 80 years remaining. I have received inconsistent advice from local Neston conveyancing solicitors. Could you confirm whether the seller of a flat can initiate the lease extension process for the purchaser on completion of the sale?
Provided that the seller has been the owner for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to kick-start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. The benefit of this is that the buyer need not have to wait 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment needs to be completed before, or simultaneously with completion of the sale.
Alternatively, it may be possible to agree the lease extension with the freeholder either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the purchaser.
I am the registered owner of a split level flat in Neston, conveyancing was carried out March 1997. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Corresponding flats in Neston with over 90 years remaining are worth £260,000. The ground rent is £45 per annum. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2097
With only 74 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to range between £8,600 and £9,800 as well as professional fees.
The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs in the absence of detailed due diligence. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other concerns that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action placing reliance on this information without first getting professional advice.
