Unfortunately, as long as it is in their Terms and Conditions or estimate then yes your conveyancer is entitled to charge a fee for this. The charge is not dictated by Kent Reliance but by your Waterloo lawyer. Numerous firms on the Kent Reliance panel will quote ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but some firms include it on their overall fee.

When appointing a solicitor for your lease extension (regardless if they are a Waterloo conveyancing firm) it is most important that he or she should be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of conveyancing. We recommend that you speak with several firms including non Waterloo conveyancing practices before you instructing a firm. If the firm is ALEP accredited then that’s a bonus. The following questions might be helpful:

    What volume of lease extensions have they completed in Waterloo in the last twenty four months?

I acquired a split level flat in Waterloo, conveyancing was carried out 9 years ago. Can you give me give me an indication of the likely cost of a lease extension? Equivalent properties in Waterloo with an extended lease are worth £260,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 invoiced every year. The lease terminates on 21st October 2099

With 75 years remaining on your lease we estimate the premium for your lease extension to range between £8,600 and £9,800 plus costs.

The figure above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs in the absence of detailed due diligence. You should not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other issues that need to be taken into account and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
