I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Ruislip Manor off the council. I have a mortgage agreed with Skipton. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Skipton, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Skipton conveyancing panel.

Your conveyancing practitioner will unlikely have any control over the extent of the charges for this information but the typical costs for the information for Ruislip Manor leasehold premises is £350.

The freeholder or their agents are not duty bound to answer these questions most will agree to do so - albeit often at high prices where the fees bear little relation to the work involved. Unfortunately there is no law that mandates set fees for administrative tasks. Nor is there any legal time frame by which they are obliged to issue the information.
