I sincerely hope you can assist me. My Sandbach conveyancer is assuring me that he is legally obliged toapply for Sandbach conveyancing searches becausethe firm are on the Virgin Moneyconveyancing panel. Is this really necessary?

Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. Given that you are taking out a loan with a bank your conveyancing practitioner has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your conveyancer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your bank’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook provisions .

Why is leasehold purchase conveyancing in Sandbach costs more?

The conveyancing charges for a leasehold premises in Sandbach is frequently more expensive as compared to a freehold acquisition or disposal. This is due to the extra work required in communicating with the landlord and management company to collate the information concerning whether the rent and service fee have been cleared and whether there are any major works due in the near future on repairs or maintenance of the block.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and identified one round the corner in Sandbach I like with open areas and transport links in the vicinity, however it only has 51 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Sandbach for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a short lease?

If you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be an issue. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this.

How do I use your search facility to locate a conveyancing practitioner in Sandbach on the panel for my lender?

1st select a lender such as Yorkshire Building Society, Norwich and Peterborough Building Society or Godiva Mortgages Ltd then type in your location such as Sandbach. Conveyancing firms in Sandbach and further afield should be identified.

I would like to sublet my leasehold apartment in Sandbach. Conveyancing solicitor who did the purchase is retired - so can't ask her. Is permission from the freeholder required?

Your lease governs relations between the landlord and you the leaseholder; in particular, it will indicate if subletting is prohibited, or permitted but only subject to certain caveats. The rule is that if the lease contains no expres ban or restriction, subletting is permitted. Most leases in Sandbach do not prevent subletting altogether – such a provision would adversely affect the market value the property. In most cases there is a basic requirement that the owner notifies the freeholder, possibly supplying a copy of the sublease.

The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 yearly. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2090

You have 67 years left to run we estimate the premium for your lease extension to be between £10,500 and £12,000 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of comprehensive investigations. Do not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt additional concerns that need to be considered and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward based on this information before getting professional advice.

I am due to assess quotes for conveyancing in Sandbach from three lawyer and decide on one. Am I right to ask them to sit tight until I have found somewhere to purchase.
