I am using a search engine for the phrase on line conveyancing in Roundhay it brings up numerous solicitorsin the area. With so much choice what is the best way to find the right property lawyer for the sale of my house?

Jane (my partner) and I may need to let out our Roundhay ground floor flat for a while due to a new job. We used a Roundhay conveyancing practice in 2003 but they have closed and we did not have the foresight to seek any advice as to whether the lease permits subletting. How do we find out?

Some leases for properties in Roundhay do contain a provision to say that subletting is only allowed with permission. The landlord is not entitled to unreasonably withhold but, in such cases, they would need to review references. Experience suggests that problems are usually caused by unsatisfactory tenants rather than owner-occupiers and for that reason you can expect the freeholder to take up the references and consider them carefully before granting permission.

I inherited a ground floor flat in Roundhay, conveyancing was carried out in 2007. How much will my lease extension cost? Comparable flats in Roundhay with over 90 years remaining are worth £186,000. The ground rent is £55 levied per year. The lease terminates on 21st October 2075

With just 52 years remaining on your lease we estimate the price of your lease extension to be between £29,500 and £34,000 as well as legals.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed due diligence. You should not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other concerns that need to be taken into account and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.

We are buying a four room housein Roundhay with a loan from a mortgage company. We wish to instruct our solicitor in Roundhay but our mortgage company says she’s not on their "panel". We have to appoint from the our bank panel firms or stay with our Roundhay solicitor and incur the extra legals for one of their panel ones to represent them. This seems very unfair; is there anything we can do?

Unfortunately,no. The mortgage company mortgage offered to you is subject to conditions, one of which will be that solicitors will on the bank's conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had open panels, including almost all conveyancing solicitors in Roundhay : a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for your lender.
