Having sold my house in Theale last March but my buyer keeps whats apping me to moan that her lawyer is waiting to hear from mylawyer. What are the post completion sale legalities following completion?

Me and my brother purchased a renovated Georgian property in Theale. Conveyancing lawyer represented me and Leeds Building Society. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are a couple of entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold with the exact same address. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?
You need to review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Theale and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with mortgage companies. You can also enquire as to the position with the conveyancing solicitor who completed the work.

If all goes to plan we aim to complete the sale of our £225,000 apartment in Theale next Monday. The management company has quoted £396 for Landlord’s certificate, building insurance schedule and previous years service charge statements. Is the landlord entitled to charge exorbitant fees for a leasehold conveyance in Theale?
Theale conveyancing on leasehold flats more often than not necessitates the buyer’s conveyancer submitting questions for the landlord to answer. Although the landlord is not legally bound to respond to these enquiries the majority will be content to assist. They are entitled to levy a reasonable administration fee for answering questions or supplying documentation. There is no upper cap for such fees. The average fee for the paperwork that you are referring to is over three hundred pounds, in some situations it is above £800. The administration charge required by the landlord must be sent together with a synopsis of entitlements and obligations in relation to administration charges, otherwise the invoice is not strictly payable. In reality one has little option but to pay whatever is demanded if you want to exchange contracts with the buyer.
