Recently been in touch with my conveyancing lawyer in Pevensey who acted for me two years ago asking for a conveyancing estimate based on the same type of house sale & purchase (a leasehold property and a freehold premises) of almost identical values with a mortgage from TSB. I am now being charged double. Am I right to be tempted to shop around for a cheaper online firm of conveyancing solicitor?

My wife and I have just acquired a house in Pevensey. We have since encountered a number of issues with the house which we believe were omitted in the conveyancing searches. Is there anything we can do? Can you clarify the type of searches that should have been conducted for conveyancing in Pevensey?
It is not clear from the question as what problems have arisen and if they are relate to conveyancing in Pevensey. Conveyancing searches and investigations initiated as part of the buying process are designed to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, the vendor completes a form called a Seller’s Property Information Form. answers proves to be misleading, then you may have a claim against the seller for any losses that you have suffered. The survey should have identified any problems with the structure of the property. Assuming a detailed survey was carried out and the issues were not identified, you may have a claim against the surveyor. However, if you did not have a full survey, you may be responsible for fixing any defects that have now been noted. We would always encourage buyers to take every possible step to ensure they are completely aware of the condition of a property before purchase regardless of whether they are buying in Pevensey.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and found one round the corner in Pevensey I like with open areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 51 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Pevensey suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?
Should you need a home loan that many years will likely be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.
I need to find a conveyancing solicitor for some conveyancing in Pevensey. I happened to chance upon a site which seems to have the ideal answer If there is a chance to get all formalities completed via web that would be preferable. Do I need to be wary? What are the potential pitfalls?

I am on look out for some leasehold conveyancing in Pevensey. Before I get started I require certainty as to the number of years remaining on the lease.
Assuming the lease is registered - and almost all are in Pevensey - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
I invested in buying a garden flat in Pevensey, conveyancing was carried out October 2004. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Comparable properties in Pevensey with a long lease are worth £185,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £65 yearly. The lease ceases on 21st October 2083
With just 61 years remaining on your lease the likely cost is going to range between £18,100 and £20,800 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.
The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to provide the actual costs without more detailed due diligence. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other issues that need to be taken into account and you obviously want to 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.
