I own a leasehold flat in Ramsey. Conveyancing and The Mortgage Works mortgage went though with no issue. I have received a letter from someone saying they have taken over the freehold. It included a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1998. The conveyancing solicitor in Ramsey who previously acted has now retired. What should I do?

First contact HMLR to be sure that the individual purporting to own the freehold is indeed the new freeholder. You do not need to incur the fees of a Ramsey conveyancing practitioner to do this as you can do this on the Land Registry website for a few pound. Rest assured that regardless, even if this is the legitimate landlord, under the Limitation Act 1980 the limitation period for recovery of ground rent is six years.

I inherited a 2 bed flat in Ramsey, conveyancing having been completed December 2001. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Similar flats in Ramsey with an extended lease are worth £192,000. The ground rent is £55 yearly. The lease runs out on 21st October 2076

With just 54 years unexpired we estimate the price of your lease extension to span between £32,300 and £37,400 plus legals.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs without more comprehensive due diligence. Do not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt additional issues that need to be considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward placing reliance on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.

Do I have to visit the offices of the mortgage company conveyancing panel solicitor to execute the mortgage deed? If so, I will instruct a firm who offer conveyancing in Ramsey so that I can pop in to their offices if required.

As opposed to ten years ago, most lenders no longer require their conveyancing panel solicitor to witness the borrowers signature. You will still be obliged to provide ID Documents and there are still distinct advantages to using a local solicitor, in your case a conveyancing solicitor in Ramsey.
