What advice can you give us when it comes to finding a Stanley conveyancing practice to deal with our lease extension?

When appointing a solicitor for lease extension works (regardless if they are a Stanley conveyancing firm) it is most important that he or she should be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of conveyancing. We suggest that you talk with two or three firms including non Stanley conveyancing practices prior to instructing a firm. Where the conveyancing practice is ALEP accredited then so much the better. The following questions could be of use:

    What are the legal fees for lease extension work?

I inherited a leasehold flat in Stanley, conveyancing having been completed April 1996. Can you let me have an estimate of the premium that my landlord can legally expect in return for granting a renewal of my lease? Equivalent flats in Stanley with an extended lease are worth £206,000. The ground rent is £45 charged once a year. The lease expires on 21st October 2087

With only 67 years unexpired 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 above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to provide the actual costs in the absence of comprehensive due diligence. Do not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt other issues that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward placing reliance on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.

After what feels like an age I have had an offer on an apartment in Stanley agreed to, but there is a chain. The current proprietors have offered on a flat, but it’s not yet agreed to, and are looking at other apartments booked. I have instructed a nearby conveyancing lawyer in Stanley. What should be my next step? At what point do I apply for the mortgage with UBS?

It is normal to have anxieties where there is an associated chain given your reluctance to incur costs prematurely (mortgage application is approx £1k, then valuation, Stanley conveyancing search fees, etc). First, you should check that your conveyancing practitioner is on the UBS approved list. As to the subsequent steps this very much dictated by the uniqueness of your transaction, desire for this property and on the state of the market. During a hot market some purchasers would apply for the mortgage with UBS and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they request their conveyancer to proceed with the conveyancing in Stanley.
