We previously selected solicitors locally in Bishops Waltham on the Lloyds solicitor panel. They are now charging me an additional amount for handling the Lloyds mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by Lloyds?

Provided it is contained in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your conveyancer is entitled to charge a fee for this.

I'm in the throws of looking at apartments in Bishops Waltham and I am now considering a potential offer. Should I already have a property lawyer in place at this stage? I will be getting a home loan with Nottingham.

It would be sensible to start your search sooner rather than later. After you have chosen your lawyer and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their contact information on to the EA. Given that you are seeking a mortgage with Nottingham, ask your prospective lawyers if they are on the Nottingham conveyancing panel otherwise they can't do the mortgage legal work.

I am employed by a reputable estate agent office in Bishops Waltham where we have witnessed a number of flat sales jeopardised due to short leases. I have been given contradictory information from local Bishops Waltham conveyancing solicitors. Could you clarify whether the seller of a flat can start the lease extension formalities for the purchaser on completion of the sale?

Provided that the seller has been the owner for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to kick-start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. The benefit of this is that the buyer can avoid having to sit tight for 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment has to be done before, or at the same time as completion of the disposal of the property.

An alternative approach is 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 acquired a studio flat in Bishops Waltham, conveyancing having been completed half a dozen years ago. How much will my lease extension cost? Similar flats in Bishops Waltham with an extended lease are worth £179,000. The ground rent is £65 invoiced annually. The lease finishes on 21st October 2076

You have 57 years remaining on your lease the likely cost is going to be between £26,600 and £30,800 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to advice on a more accurate figure without more comprehensive due diligence. You should not use the figures 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 placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
