For most leasehold sales in St Giles conveyancing will involve, queries regarding the management of a building inevitably needing to be answered directly by the freeholder or its agent, this includes :

    Completing pre-contract questions Where consent is required before sale in St Giles Supplying insurance information Deeds of covenant upon sale Registering of the assignment of the change of lessee after a sale
Your conveyancer will have no control over the level of the charges for this information but the average costs for the information for St Giles leasehold premises is £350. For St Giles conveyancing transactions it is customary for the seller to pay for these costs. The landlord or their agents are under no legal obligation to answer such questions most will be willing to do so - albeit often at exorbitant prices where the fees bear little relation to the work involved. Unfortunately there is no law that requires fixed charges for administrative tasks. Neither is there any legal time frame by which they are required to provide the information.

Most definitely. We can put you in touch with a St Giles conveyancing firm who can help.

An example of a Lease Extension decision for a St Giles property is Flat 89 Trinity Court Grays Inn Road in February 2013. the Tribunal found that the premium to be paid by the tenant on the grant of a new lease, in accordance with section 56 and Schedule 13 to the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 should be £36,229. This case related to 1 flat. The unexpired term as at the valuation date was 66.8 years.

New build sellers have put forward a lawyer and I've received an estimate from them. It's almost £250 cheaper than my family St Giles conveyancing practitioner. Should I use them?

Housebuilders often have lists of lawyers who are quick and who know the seller’s contract and lawyer. Plenty of developers offer an incentive to choose their approved lawyer for this reason, any increased fees can be avoided and a developer will not suggest a conveyancing factory and run the risk of having the transaction delayed when they require an exchange within a tight time frame. The argument for not agreeing to use the recommended property lawyer is that they may prove hesitant to 'push' your interests for fear of alienating the housebuilder. If you worry that this may be the situation you should stick with your local St Giles lawyer.
