There is lots of here concerning conveyancing in Redruth but what is your top tip for appointing the right conveyancer in Redruth

It would be unwise to be seduced by the cheapest Redruth conveyancing fees. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.

I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with Leeds Building Society. I assume I don't need a Redruth property lawyer on the Leeds Building Society panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?

If you have finished paying off your Leeds Building Society mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Leeds Building Society mortgage from the register. Leeds Building Society, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where Leeds Building Society has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. Leeds Building Society has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Leeds Building Society mortgage has been paid off.

What are your top tips when it comes to appointing a Redruth conveyancing firm to deal with our lease extension?

When appointing a conveyancer for lease extension works (regardless if they are a Redruth conveyancing firm) it is imperative that they be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of conveyancing. We advise that you speak with two or three firms including non Redruth conveyancing practices prior to instructing a firm. If the firm is ALEP accredited then that’s a bonus. The following questions might be helpful:

    How many lease extensions have they completed in Redruth in the last year? If they are not ALEP accredited then what is the reason?

I acquired a 1st floor flat in Redruth, conveyancing having been completed in 2002. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Similar flats in Redruth with an extended lease are worth £255,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 per annum. The lease terminates on 21st October 2093

With only 73 years left to run the likely cost is going to span between £8,600 and £9,800 as well as legals.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed investigations. You should not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt additional issues that need to be considered and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward placing reliance on this information without first getting professional advice.
