At what point will exchange of contracts take place for purchase conveyancing in Breaston and do I need to be at the solicitors branch?

Where you are near to our conveyancing solicitors in Breaston you are invited in to sign contracts. That being said, the law practices we work with provide countrywide coverage for conveyancing and provide as equally detailed and professional a job for you when dealing with you by post or email. The signing of the contract is not when everything is set in stone. Signing on the dotted line is just a prerequisite for the conveyancer to exchange contracts when the time is right, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The procedure is is usually a five minute process, although where an extended "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Breaston)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

If all goes to plan we aim to complete our sale of a £150,000 maisonette in Breaston in just under a week. The management company has quoted £408 for Landlord’s certificate, insurance certificate and previous years statements of service charge. Is it legal for a freeholder to charge an administration fee for a flat conveyance in Breaston?

Breaston conveyancing on leasehold flats normally involves the purchaser’s conveyancer submitting questions for the landlord to address. Although the landlord is not legally bound to answer such questions most will be content to assist. They are entitled to charge a reasonable administration fee for responding to questions or supplying documentation. There is no set fee. The average fee for the information that you are referring to is over three hundred pounds, in some transactions it is above £800. The management information fee invoiced by the landlord must be sent together with a synopsis of entitlements and obligations in respect of administration charges, otherwise the charge is not strictly payable. Reality however dictates that you have little option but to pay whatever is demanded if you want to complete the sale of your home.

I purchased a 1st floor flat in Breaston, conveyancing having been completed 5 years ago. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Equivalent flats in Breaston with a long lease are worth £265,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 levied per year. The lease finishes on 21st October 2098

With only 76 years unexpired the likely cost is going to range between £8,600 and £9,800 plus professional fees.

The figure above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to supply a more accurate figure without more detailed investigations. 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 taken into account and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action placing reliance on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
