Our conveyancer has advised that he intends to complete and exchange simultaneously on the disposal of our £450,000 garden flat in Bridlington next Friday.

Bridlington conveyancing on leasehold apartments often necessitates the purchaser’s conveyancer submitting enquiries for the landlord to answer. Although the landlord is not legally bound to answer such questions most will be willing to do so. They are entitled to levy a reasonable charge for responding to questions or supplying documentation. There is no upper cap for such fees. The average costs for the information that you are referring to is over three hundred pounds, in some situations it is above £800. The administration charge required by the landlord must be sent together with a summary of rights and obligations in respect of administration charges, otherwise the invoice is not strictly payable. Reality however dictates that you have little option but to pay whatever is requested of you if you want to exchange contracts with the buyer.
I inherited a ground floor flat in Bridlington, conveyancing having been completed in 1999. Can you give me give me an indication of the likely cost of a lease extension? Similar flats in Bridlington with an extended lease are worth £197,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £55 invoiced annually. The lease finishes on 21st October 2076

I am just shy of a 10% deposit on my apartment purchase in Bridlington , but I am keen exchange. Do I have options?
One option is to try and agree a lesser deposit. Many sellers will agree to a smaller deposit or even no deposit for a first time buyer or 100% mortgage. Be aware though that if you fail to complete you will still need to hand over a minimum of 10% of the purchase price regardless of how much deposit was agreed.
You can also agree a simultaneous exchange and completion as no deposit is required for this however neither party will be tied in until completion actually takes place and it can be risky if sellers change their mind at the last moment
