I bought my apartment on 16 January and my personal details are still not on the land registry website. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in Altrincham said it would be recorded in a couple of weeks. Are titles in Altrincham uniquely lengthy to register?

There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Altrincham registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timeframes can differ according to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry must send notices to any interested parties. As of today roughly 80% of submission are fully dealt with within two weeks but some can be subject to longer hold-ups. Registration is effected after the new owner has moved in to the property therefore 'speed' is not always primary concern but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer must communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.

I am employed by a long established estate agency in Altrincham where we see a few leasehold sales put at risk due to leases having less than 80 years remaining. I have received conflicting advice from local Altrincham conveyancing solicitors. Could you shed some light as to whether the vendor of a flat can initiate the lease extension process for the purchaser on completion of the sale?

As long as the seller has owned the lease for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. This means that the proposed purchaser need not have to wait 2 years for a lease extension. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment has to be done before, or simultaneously with completion of the disposal of the property.

Alternatively, it may be possible to extend the lease informally by agreement with the landlord either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the buyer.

I bought a split level flat in Altrincham, conveyancing having been completed half a dozen years ago. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Corresponding flats in Altrincham with a long lease are worth £190,000. The ground rent is £65 yearly. The lease finishes on 21st October 2083

You have 62 years left to run the likely cost is going to range between £17,100 and £19,800 as well as costs.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of comprehensive due diligence. You should not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be additional issues that need to be considered and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward based on this information without first getting professional advice.
