There are plenty of solicitors advertising what appear to be cut price.

I can not work out if my bank requires a lease extension. I have telephoned my Attleborough building society branch on a couple of occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they will lend. My Attleborough conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they refuse to lend in accordance with their published requirements. Who do I believe?

Provided that the solicitor is on the mortgage company panel, she or he must follow the CML Handbook conditions for the lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

I was told three weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Nationwide. Is it usual for Nationwide to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Attleborough is approved on their conveyancing panel?

I've recently bought a leasehold property in Attleborough. Do I have any liability for service charges relating to a period prior to my ownership?

In a situation where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous lessee and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. Strange as it may seem, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. It is an essential part of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to be sure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.

If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).

I inherited a split level flat in Attleborough, conveyancing having been completed October 2011. How much will my lease extension cost? Corresponding flats in Attleborough with a long lease are worth £190,000. The ground rent is £45 yearly. The lease ends on 21st October 2086

With 62 years left to run the likely cost is going to span between £17,100 and £19,800 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs without more comprehensive investigations. Do not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt additional issues that need to be taken into account and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward based on this information without first getting professional advice.
