It is understandable to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses prematurely (mortgage application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then valuation, Bolsover conveyancing search charges, etc). The first thing to do is ensure that your solicitor is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. Concerning the subsequent steps this very much dictated by the circumstances of your case, motivation for this property and on the state of the market. During a rising market many home buyers would apply for the mortgage with Kent Reliance and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they request their conveyancing practitioner to proceed with searches.

There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Bolsover registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can differ according to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry must send notices to any other parties. Currently roughly 80% of such applications are fully dealt with within 12 days but occasionally there can be protracted delays. Historically registration occurs after the new owner has moved in to the premises so 'speed' is not always primary concern but where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your lawyers can contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.

I own a leasehold flat in Bolsover. Conveyancing and Lloyds TSB Bank mortgage are in place. I have received a letter from someone claiming to own the reversionary interest in the property. Attached was a ground rent demand for rent dating back to 1996. The conveyancing practitioner in Bolsover who acted for me is not around. Any advice?

First contact the Land Registry to make sure that the individual purporting to own the freehold is indeed the new freeholder. There is no need to incur the fees of a Bolsover conveyancing firm to do this as it can be done on-line for a few pound. Rest assured that in any event, even if this is the legitimate landlord, under the Limitation Act 1980 the limitation period for recovery of ground rent is six years.

I bought a split level flat in Bolsover, conveyancing was carried out in 1996. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Similar flats in Bolsover with a long lease are worth £222,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 per annum. The lease ceases on 21st October 2091

With just 70 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to range between £9,500 and £11,000 plus 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 cannot give you a more accurate figure without more comprehensive due diligence. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt additional concerns that need to be considered and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action placing reliance on this information before getting professional advice.
