You will need to use a conveyancer to deal with the formalities if you take out a mortgage to buy your property. They will conduct all the necessary legal checks on the property, ensuring that you will be registered as proprietor and ensure that all the necessary mortgage paperwork is dealt with. You may appoint a Small Heath conveyancing practitioner of your choosing. However, if the property lawyer selected is not on the lender approved list supplemental fees will arise as separate legal representation will be required by them. Lender panel applications may be submitted, so if your lawyer has not historically sought membership they should take the chance to apply.

    Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease.

Can you offer any advice when it comes to appointing a Small Heath conveyancing practice to deal with our lease extension?

When appointing a solicitor for your lease extension (regardless if they are a Small Heath conveyancing firm) it is imperative that he or she should be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of work. We recommend that you talk with two or three firms including non Small Heath conveyancing practices prior to instructing a firm. If the firm is ALEP accredited then that’s a bonus. The following questions could be helpful:

    What are the legal fees for lease extension conveyancing? Can they put you in touch with clients in Small Heath who can give a testimonial?

I am the registered owner of a leasehold flat in Small Heath, conveyancing formalities finalised half a dozen years ago. How much will my lease extension cost? Corresponding properties in Small Heath with over 90 years remaining are worth £179,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £65 invoiced annually. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2081

With just 57 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £26,600 and £30,800 plus costs.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to provide a more accurate figure without more comprehensive due diligence. You should not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt other issues that need to be considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
