I am expecting a offer of a home loan from Halifax. My intention is to use a Licensed Conveyancer in Datchet. Does the Halifax Conveyancing panel allow for Licensed Conveyancers?

The deeds to my house can not be found. The solicitors who did the conveyancing in Datchet 5 years ago no longer exist. What do I do?

Assuming you have a registered title the details of your proprietorship will be retained by the Land Registry under a Title Number.

If the property is Leasehold then the Land Registry will usually hold a certified duplicate of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be obtained for twenty pounds.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a simple, chain free conveyancing. Datchet is the location of the property. Is there any guidance you can impart?

Flying freeholds in Datchet are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Datchet you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Datchet may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.

Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my basement apartment in Datchet. Conveyancing is yet to be initiated, however I have just received a quarterly service charge demand – Do I pay up?

The sensible thing to do is clear the maintenance contribution as usual as all ground rent and service charges should be apportioned as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.

I am the registered owner of a 1 bedroom flat in Datchet, conveyancing was carried out half a dozen years ago. Can you give me give me an indication of the likely cost of a lease extension?

With 62 years left to run we estimate the price of your lease extension to be between £17,100 and £19,800 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The figure above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to advice on the actual costs without more detailed investigations. You should not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt additional issues that need to be considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward based on this information before getting professional advice.
