I am under pressure from the executor of a property in Bishopston to complete within four weeks. What can I do to speed up matters?

Where the seller is applying a tight deadline to sign contracts we would recommend that your lawyer is familiar with the location as they will benefit local connections and intelligence. It is possible that they could have transacted previousproperties in the same street. You would be best advised to use a Bishopston conveyancing firm. In addition, double check that the conveyancing firm is on the lender panel. It is estimated that nearly one in five of Bishopston conveyancing deals are delayed or derailed after discovering a purchaser’s lawyer was not on their mortgage lender’s panel. This can often result in the transaction being frustrated by almost three weeks. It is believed that this issue impacts approximately 100,000 home sales annually. Many Bishopston conveyancing firms can not act for certain mortgage companies so do check as early as possible.

five months have elapsed following my purchase conveyancing in Bishopston took place. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the premises from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

What advice can you give us when it comes to choosing a Bishopston conveyancing firm to deal with our lease extension?

If you are instructing a property lawyer for your lease extension (regardless if they are a Bishopston conveyancing practice) it is imperative that they be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of conveyancing. We advise that you talk with two or three firms including non Bishopston conveyancing practices prior to instructing a firm. If the firm is ALEP accredited then so much the better. The following questions might be useful:

    How familiar is the practice with lease extension legislation?

I purchased a split level flat in Bishopston, conveyancing was carried out in 2001. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Comparable properties in Bishopston with over 90 years remaining are worth £176,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 levied per year. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2099

With 80 years remaining on your lease the likely cost is going to span between £8,600 and £9,800 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 renewing a lease, but we are not able to supply the actual costs without more comprehensive investigations. Do not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. 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. Neither should you move forward based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
