I had intended to instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Pevensey Bay for our home move. Our broker informed us that our mortgage lenders Nottingham Building Society won't deal with them. Why is this not regarded as unduly restrictive?

Banks ordinarily imposes restrictions either the type or the volume of conveyancing solicitors on their approved list of lawyers.

I've recently bought a leasehold house in Pevensey Bay. Am I liable to pay service charges relating to a period prior to completion of my purchase?

Where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous lessee and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. Strange as it may seem, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. It is an essential part of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to ensure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.

If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).

With 58 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £22,800 and £26,400 plus professional fees.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to advice on a more accurate figure 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.
