As you are obtaining a mortgage with RBS your lawyer must comply with the conveyancing requirements set out in Section two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for RBS.

The conditions relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not isolated to Amersham.

My wife and I purchased a renovated Georgian property in Amersham. Conveyancing practitioner acted for me and Leeds Building Society. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw two entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold with the matching address. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??

You should review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for 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 Amersham and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also question the position with your conveyancing lawyer who conducted the work.

Our conveyancer has advised that he intends to complete and exchange simultaneously on the sale of our £250,000 garden flat in Amersham on Tuesday in a week.

Is it legal for a freeholder to charge an administration fee for a flat conveyance in Amersham?

Amersham conveyancing on leasehold maisonettes usually results in administration charges raised by management companies :

    Addressing pre-contract enquiries Where consent is required before sale in Amersham Copies of the building insurance and schedule Deeds of covenant upon sale Registering of the assignment of the change of lessee after a sale
Your solicitor will have no control over the level of the charges for this information but the average costs for the information for Amersham leasehold premises is £350. For Amersham conveyancing transactions it is customary for the seller to pay for these costs. The landlord or their agents are under no legal obligation to answer such questions most will be willing to do so - albeit often at exorbitant prices where the fees bear little relation to the work involved. Unfortunately there is no law that requires fixed charges for administrative tasks. Neither is there any legal time frame by which they are obliged to provide answers.

I am the registered owner of a 1 bedroom flat in Amersham, conveyancing formalities finalised April 1997. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Corresponding flats in Amersham with a long lease are worth £211,000. The ground rent is £45 charged once a year. The lease finishes on 21st October 2088

You have 67 years left to run we estimate the premium for your lease extension to be between £10,500 and £12,000 as well as legals.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of comprehensive due diligence. You should not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt other issues that need to be taken into account 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.
