Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering laws require solicitors and licensed conveyancers to check the identity of the person or body they are dealing with prior to agreeing to accepting their conveyancing retainer.

As is the case with many service providers, often referrals from family and friends can be worth their weight in gold. Nevertheless there are lots of people with a vested interest in a conveyancing transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage companies might all recommend solicitors to appoint. Sometimes the conveyancers might be known to one of the organisations as experts in their field, but occasionally there behind the scenes financial incentive behind the recommendation. You have the right to appoint your own conveyancer. You need to be aware that some banks specify a panel list of solicitors you are obliged to use for the mortgage aspect of your transaction.

Am I best advised to use a Sileby conveyancing solicitor based in the location that I am buying? I have an old university friend who can perform the legal work however her office is 300kilometers drive away.

The benefit of a local Sileby conveyancing practice is that you can attend the office to execute paperwork, present your ID and apply pressure on them if necessary. They will also have local intelligence which is a bonus. However nothing is more important than finding someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If other friends have instructed your friend and in the main were content that should trump using an unfamiliar Sileby conveyancing solicitor solely due to them being Sileby based.

I invested in buying a studio flat in Sileby, conveyancing having been completed June 2006. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Comparable properties in Sileby with a long lease are worth £180,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £65 invoiced annually. The lease terminates on 21st October 2080

With just 59 years remaining on your lease we estimate the price of your lease extension to range between £20,900 and £24,200 plus professional fees.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more detailed due diligence. Do not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer.
