Is there a reason why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Bromham costs more?
In short, leasehold conveyancing in Bromham and elsewhere usually warrants extra due diligence compared to freehold conveyancing. This includes reviewing the lease, corresponding with the landlord about the service of appropriate notices, obtaining current service charge and management information, securing the freeholder’s consents and reviewing management accounts. The obligations on both the landlord and the tenant in the lease need to be studied by the buyer’s conveyancing team and read from beginning to end – no matter how many different owners have owned the lease since it was first granted.

These days conveyancing panel lawyers for mortgage companies undertake all of the work via the post, internet or over phone calls. This enables them to carry out the conveyancing transaction regardless of where you live in England or Wales. However you can check if you have the option of attending the offices of your conveyancing lawyer if just in case this is required.
four months have gone by since my purchase conveyancing in Bromham completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £170,000. 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 property 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.

I purchased a studio flat in Bromham, conveyancing having been completed half a dozen years ago. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Comparable flats in Bromham with an extended lease are worth £165,000. The ground rent is £50 per annum. The lease ends on 21st October 2098
With only 77 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £7,600 and £8,800 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.
The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs without more detailed due diligence. Do not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other issues that need to be taken into account and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not take any other action based on this information before getting professional advice.
