I have just been advised by my broker that my East and West Horsley the law firm I have appointed is not on the lender Conveyancing panel. What can I do to be sure whether this is correct?
Your first step should be to contact your East and West Horsley conveyancer. You lawyer should inform you what has happened. Where they are not on the panel they may be able to suggest a East and West Horsley conveyancing firm that is on the conveyancing panel for your mortgage company.
We are about to sign contracts for a garden flat in East and West Horsley. We have hit a stumbling block. Our loan offer with Coventry Building Society runs out on 16/9/2019 but the vendors are putting forward a completion date of 18/9/2019. Can one extend the mortgage offer?
The best person to deal with your issue is your lawyer who will hopefully calculate whether he or she is should be discussing with the mortgage broker, vendor’s lawyers, estate agents or possibly all three given the history of your transaction to date.
Is there a reason why leasehold purchase conveyancing in East and West Horsley costs more?
East and West Horsley leasehold properties involve far more paperwork than a freehold purchase, and therefore takes more time to examine and advise upon.Conveyancing will involve the lease having to be checked which is usually a lengthy document, queries raised to ensure that the covenants and conditions have been observed. If it is a flat there will be a management company in existence and the accounts of this will need to be checked and enquiries raised to ensure it is operating efficiently and that all monies due have been paid by the Seller to the company and if not ensuring that money is paid up to date or the appropriate undertakings obtained.
The deeds to my house are lost. The lawyers who conducted the conveyancing in East and West Horsley 4 years ago are no longer around. What are my next steps?

What advice can you give us when it comes to choosing a East and West Horsley conveyancing practice to deal with our lease extension?
If you are instructing a conveyancer for your lease extension (regardless if they are a East and West Horsley conveyancing practice) it is imperative that he or she should be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of conveyancing.

The following questions might be useful:
How familiar is the practice with lease extension legislation? Can they put you in touch with clients in East and West Horsley who can give a testimonial?
I own a garden flat in East and West Horsley, conveyancing formalities finalised 5 years ago. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Equivalent properties in East and West Horsley with over 90 years remaining are worth £206,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 yearly. The lease ceases on 21st October 2085
With just 66 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to range between £12,400 and £14,200 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.
The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to supply a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed due diligence. Do not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be additional concerns that need to be considered and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not take any other action based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
