It is a dozen years since I purchased my house in Deeside. Conveyancing lawyers have now been appointed on the sale but I can't locate the title documents. Will this cause complications?

You need not be too concerned. Firstly the deeds may be kept by your mortgage company or they could be in the possession of the conveyancers who acted in your purchase. Secondly in most cases the title will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to prove you own the property by your conveyancing solicitors obtaining up to date copy of the land registers. Nearly all conveyancing in Deeside relates to registered property but in the unlikely event that your property is not registered it adds to the complexity but is resolvable.

The benefit of a high street Deeside conveyancing firm is that you can visit the firm to sign paperwork, deliver your identification documents and pester them where appropriate. They will also have local insight which is a benefit. However it's more important to get someone that will do a good and efficient job. If you know people who instructed your friend and they were impressed that must surpass using an unknown Deeside conveyancing solicitor solely due to them being round the corner.

I am looking at a two apartments in Deeside which have approximately forty five years left on the leases. Will this present a problem?

A lease is a right to use the property for a prescribed time frame. As the lease shortens the value of the lease reduces and results in it becoming more expensive to acquire a lease extension. For this reason it is often a good idea to increase the term of the lease. Sometimes it is difficulties arise selling premises with a short lease because mortgage lenders less inclined to grant a loan on such properties. Lease enfranchisement can be a difficult process. We recommend you get professional help from a conveyancer and surveyor with experience in this area.

I acquired a 1st floor flat in Deeside, conveyancing having been completed 9 years ago. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Corresponding properties in Deeside with an extended lease are worth £216,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 per annum. The lease finishes on 21st October 2093

With 69 years left to run we estimate the premium for your lease extension to range between £9,500 and £11,000 plus professional fees.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs in the absence of detailed due diligence. You should not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be other issues that need to be considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
