I have 7378 less than 75 years left on my lease and need a lease extension for my flat in Winsford. Conveyancing solicitors on the Bank of Ireland panel can deal with such extensions correct?

I have todaybeen informed that Arc property Solicitors have been shut down. They conducted my conveyancing in Winsford for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 10 months ago. How can I establish that the property is not still registered in the name of the previous owner?

The easiest way to see if the property is in your name, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Winsford conveyancing specialists.

Am I best advised to choose a Winsford conveyancing practitioner based in the location that I am buying? We have a good friend who can execute the conveyancing but her office is 400miles away.

The primary upside of using a high street Winsford conveyancing firm is that you can visit the firm to execute paperwork, deliver your ID and pester them if necessary. They will also have local intelligence which is a benefit. That being said nothing is more important than finding someone that will do a good and efficient job. If other friends have used your friend and in the main were content that must outweigh using an unknown Winsford conveyancing lawyer solely due to them being local.

I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Winsford. Before diving in I want to be sure as to the unexpired term of the lease.

Assuming the lease is registered - and most are in Winsford - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

I acquired a split level flat in Winsford, conveyancing was carried out 7 years ago. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Similar flats in Winsford with over 90 years remaining are worth £180,000. The ground rent is £65 invoiced every year. The lease terminates on 21st October 2079

With 59 years remaining on your lease we estimate the price of your lease extension to span between £20,900 and £24,200 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to provide the actual costs in the absence of detailed investigations. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional issues that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward placing reliance on this information before getting professional advice.
